The first trip carrying passengers was July 30, 1904. The trams have similarities to both trolleys and double-decker buses. Like trolleys, the trams follow a track and get power from a wire above the car. The cars currently in use are similar to double-decker buses with passengers able to ride on both levels. The Web site has an online museum which presents a timeline of the tramways' history. Photos of cars over the years are shown and the site also looks to the future comparing the new tram with the existing tram.More links for traffic and transportation: http://www.trafficlinq.com===================================================The Transportation Communications Newsletter is published electronically Monday through Friday.
