FLORENCE | Public Transport

The tramways network of Florence is currently under construction. Current projects include three lines.

In the past Florence had already possessed a network of tramways, closed in the year 1958.

Line 1 (completed, but non opened yet)





Line 2


Line 3

Why hasn't anyone done a composite map of all 3 lines? Every source I've looked at always shows them individually like this. I'm sure there's one out there, but... ?

Hmmm... Tell me one thing:what can you tell me about deliveries of trams for Italian cities by Ansaldobreda? Because when I read about their forreign contracts,some deliveries were delayed ( for Los Angeles it was even THREE YEARS AFTER SETTLED TIME!).Is that possible,that time has come and trams are... still at manufacturers factory?

I don't think it is a good idea: line 3 is expected to have far greater demand than line 1, albeit its construction will be more challenging.

Maybe a study of passenger flows observed that the larger demand from Scandicci and south-west part of Florence is up to Firenze Santa Maria Novella railway station. For the other passenger that have to go in the northern part of Florence, they can change line. The interchange aren't so bad

Keeping separated the line, the service is much easier to manage
