Car free Utrecht finds buses wont work so is installing trams

Spanish Supplier CAR is providing trams for Utrecht

Utrecht has a virtually car free centre and relises on buses and cycling, but studies have shown that the bus network has reached a saturation point and is no more a viable solution for the growing passenger traffic in the region. As a result, a tram network was seen as a more practical alternative public transport system as it can carry up to five times more passengers than a bus.

The BRU agreed to the ‘Tram Network 2025’ report in late 2009, which suggested a network of five tram lines in the Utrecht region. The final design of the Uithof Line was adopted in June 2013.
