Hong Kong’s tram way

Hong Kong’s icon, the 100 year old trams, are set to undergo change after a Hong Kong conglomerate Wharf (Holdings) which owns the Hong Kong trams, has sold a 50pc stake to French giant Veolia Transport. 

Hong Kong’ tramway started operation in 1904. There were 16 one-deck trams then. Now the 2-deck tram fleet has expanded to 163. 

Trams are the cheapest means of public transport in Hong Kong. Adults pay HK$2 (US$0.26) and children pay half that price. The fee has remained unchanged for over 10 years. That is pretty amazing. 

When you are in Hong Kong, don’t miss out a ride on this Hong Kong icon.  I hope the tram will remain as cheap a means of transport as it is, and its look and service will sustain the Hong Kong way after the new owner takes over.
