At least this line E2 could be extended towards Caballito, to serve more people in city centre.

Buenos Aires’ tram fate is not so bright nowadays. In one point, it has completely closed the former gigantic 800+ Km. tram network in 1963, but since then very little progress happened. Those old stocks are now partly used by the heritage tram network, opened in 1980. The modern tram ‘Premetro` opened in 1987 as metro line E feeder, but many may not know that there was some plans for more such feeder tram routes with metro line C, D & H. The foolish government ultimately cancelled all tram plans, and replaced by a weak and polluted BRT, even they are now planning to substitute future metro line I with BRT. But we all know that tram is far better than BRT. Tram is cheaper, safer and Eco-friendly. Even another modern tram system ‘Tranvia Del Este’ has now closed, without any extension.

You are right but sadly here the BRT lobby is winning the race...

European and Far East (except perhaps India) countries are more LRT-friendly, on the other side American countries are car- or BRT-friendly... However, in the US there's again a growing feeling of attraction for LRTs and streetcars despite of the hard anti-rail lobbysm. In Southamerica also there are many cities that started recently the path to build new rail networks but in Argentina the ruling party is taking the opposite direction. Many of us here are afraid of loosing the last chance to have efficient transit systems in our big cities, because of the good general image of the new goverment that induce people to accept this awful transport politic without criticism. There's a lot of mass-media bashing rail transport and supporting the BRT mode too.

That's my opinion, actually I hope I'm wrong and the future of HRT and LRT in Argentina is not so dark as I suppose...

Reality has shown quickly that my fears weren't unfounded: New national Transport Minister said that he won't support building a Subway network on Argentina's second biggest city, Córdoba. The government instead will fund only a BRT network, so the same will be the case for the rest of the cities. Therefore, we must wait another 4 or 8 years to have what we need since 20 years...
