Trams in Rīga, Latvia

Pictures by various authors from parovoz.com. Except the first one - that's by me.


Tatra T3a trams usually consist of 1 or 2 cars. This one is in Jugla for driver training.


This one is on the twice-per-hour line 2.


Tram on line 10 with the new Light palace in the background. This tram line has stayed unchanged for 100 years and even has it's own song.


Tatra T6B5 have recently been refurbished and some have received a new livery.


Škoda ForCity Alfa (previously Škoda 15T/15T1) are the newest addition to the city's network. 20 are 3-section trams with capacity for 318 which is less than in the old trams. But 6 are 4-section trams with capacity for 438 people which is considerably more.
In the picture is 4-section low floor tram 01 with the first passenger service on line 11.


3-section low floor tram 02 with mobile company LMT advertisement.


4-section low floor tram 06 and various other waiting for the start of 2 minute interval for the 25th folk Song and dance festival.


Phoenix tram car on route Ausekļa street - Mežaparks.

I have been to Lviv, Ukraine and it's a not a drab Soviet looking place as you might think but a typical central european city. Is that the Opera on the 3rd photo ?

A video I shot in my street last year of the new class of locally built trams undergoing a test on my route.

Liepāja, Latvia
Opened in 1899 it is the oldest tram system in the Baltics. In late 1970ies it was reduced to only one line. But that line was extended to length of 15 km in 2013, and there are plans for a second line that would be built when the city will get money to build a viaduct over the railway station. It is also the only public transport network in the country with GPS so that you can see the vehicle locations on a map in real time. Tram ticket costs 57 euro cents.


KT4SU at the bus and railway station. There is a passenger train only 2 times per week.


KT4D at the new extension terminus "Mirdzas Ķempes iela"

Not a big fan of the color scheme (I would take out the green and stick with the white-yellow livery), but I love the design! What's the manufacturer?

my opinion couldn't be more polar to yours. was thinking these new trams are really good looking, saw the Dalian one and just thought that Dalian quickly needs it's Metro density to increase. That tram looks really outdated.

Might just be me getting tired of that Tram in Essen though. Just horribly uncomfortable.
