Trams making a comeback

A tram passes in front of the Kai Yuan Med Shopping Center during a trial run of Shanghai’s new tram line, the T2 in Songjiang District yesterday. Fifty local residents took part in the run covering four stops — Jiangxue Road, Xilin Road N. , Kai Yuan Med Shopping Center and Wenhui Road — over more than 2.5 kilometers. The district information office said the service from Canghua Road Station on T1 to Longma Road Station on T2 would be tested in early 2018. Both lines are expected to begin pilot operations in November next year. Shanghai revived its historic tram system in 2010 with the Zhangjiang Tram service, still the only line in operation. — Han Jiayi
