After 30 years, trams ready to roll

TRAMS in Pudong's Zhangjiang High-tech Park are due to begin trial passenger runs ahead of National Day on October 1, officials said yesterday.

Public trams have not been in Shanghai for 30 years.

A ticket on the air-conditioned trams will cost 2 yuan (29 US cents), the same as for most commuter buses.

Passengers will also enjoy the discounts for transferring between trams and other means of public transport.

The Shanghai Public Transportation Card can be used on the service once the line is open for business, officials said.

The 10-kilometer route will link Zhangjiang High-tech Park Metro Station on Line 2 to Jinqiu Road in Zhangjiang Semiconductor Industry Park.

There are 15 stops, the distance between each station averages 600 meters and trams will arrive at intervals of between six and eight minutes.

The budget for the project is about 600 million yuan.
