Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Munich Tramway is an eleven-line tramway operated by Munich City Utilities's subsidiary Munich Public Transportation Company as part of the Munich Transport and Tariff Association transit area. The network is 75 kilometres long, operated by 95 trams transporting 94.5 million people in 2009. The network has 155 stops. There is a night tram service with four routes. The system uses standard gauge, unidirectional trams and 2.3 metres wide bodies. The tramway started in 1876, with a horsecar service. Two years later, the Soci t Anonyme des Tramways de Munich was founded. In 1882, M nchner Trambahn-Aktiengesellschaft was founded. Electric trams were introduced in 1895, and in 1900, the last horsecar was taken out of service. In 1907, MTAG was nationalized by the city, and changed its name to St dtische Stra enbahnen. In 1919, the municipal agency M nchner Stra enbahnen was established. After World War II ended in 1945, only twenty tram lines remained; of 444 trams, only 168 were in operational condition. In 1956, the first new tram line after the war was opened.show more
