NZ Herald reports:
Waterfront trams are being tipped as key Auckland tourist attractions, with a possible later benefit for public transport.
Although the Auckland Regional Council has no plans for a modern light rail network to serve commuters, its transport committee voted yesterday to press on with an investigation of potential tram routes through the Tank Farm to Britomart.
A staff feasibility report prepared after an approach by the Campaign for Better Transport and the Museum of Transport and Technology (Motat) said Auckland’s waterfront was a major destination and attraction for residents and visitors alike, and should be enjoyed by as many people as possible.
One thought on “Trams Touted as Tourist Drawcard”
YES!!! Bring back trams. Good grief, why can people not see how efficient and useful trams are? Just look at cities like Melbourne and Sydney! There is hardly a place you can’t get to either via tram, rail or bus (to the outer areas).
