Bravo brother, this is marvelous. I always see my foreign friends just like from Medellin or Rio de Janeiro, or you may say from Colombia or Brazil always reply me details point by point, where as my native people from India rebuke me. This is the cultural difference, and a great example how to develop a nation. Thank you very much for your reply.

Before opening metro network, the tram network was very very strong, covered all important streets of entire downtown, and all directions of Rio de Janeiro city. Places like Uruguai, Saens Pena, Sao Francisco Xavier, Afonso Pena, Estacio, Central Station, Flamengo, Botafogo, General Osorio, Iraja, Vincente de Carvalho, Maracana, Cidade Nova all were once served by trams, but now replaced by metro. Personally I support replacing by metro, but, beside this, many former tram routes are not covered by metro. I heard the future extension planning is also not good for metro, so was not it was a great mistake to close those routes?

In case of new SG tram, Santo Cristo and Gamboa are the two places which formerly served by older tram system. The new SG tram serves some new area. I think it should be extended following some old closed routes.

There are some important links about the tram and metro -

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Teresa_Tram
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_de_Janeiro_Light_Rail
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_de_Janeiro_Metro

Those who are interested in metro system, I have created this group. It is just for information. Here is no barrier of continent, but all posts should be made only in English.
