TRONDHEIM | Public Transport

Trondheim is Norways third biggest city with a population of about 150 000 citicens. There is no tram system in the world, which lies so far north as the system in Trondheim. It was much bigger, but atleast. Grċkallbanen, which is a small private company, saved Trondheim from loosing the tram completely.

The whole tramtrip from the center up to Lijan takes about 20 mins.

Michal

Now this looks weird. I would think a tram is something that runs through a busy city with skyscrapers in the background, not someplace that looks like it's in the middle of small town.

Some of the trams in Trondheim still looks like the old 70s busses though. Today the system is quite small, with a rout from downtown to Byċsen/Lian. But they have suggested to expand the system. I've taken the tram twise i think, from Byċsen to Lian, and from Lian to downtown.

Btw, how many trams is there in Trondheim, 3? The new one, the brown/yellow one, and the classic old one?

Trondheim got worlds northend tram

Yes, Trondheim with its 150 000 citizens also got a tram, though its only one line.



St. Olavsgt is almost center of Trondheim, then it runs towards the bushes and uphill.




In the center of Trondheim.


One of many cool bridges.


Near centrum, one of the few parts with double track.

If you have more pictures of this brillian upnorth system, which is infact worlds northest tram.

Though its only one line, Connex have bought some shares in the company driving the trams, so there might be extensions in the future. I hope!...

I took that tram a few years back visiting Trondheim. The tram journy is rather nice, going through some leafy neighbourhoods on the hill side. It had great views over the city coming down, well worth a go if you happen to be there. I think they are actually expanding the line through the city and onwards to the harbour area:

Can this system have much of a capacity if its in large parts only with a single track?

It would be cool if they expand it like Yollowinc says.

According to http://www.graakallbanen.no/ The line has approximately 4 departures each direction every hour which is probably just right for a single track, and has about 800000 passangers a year. But if they where to expand through the city down to the harbour the passanger numbers would more than likely increase (double!?), and might put pressure on the single track if more frequent departures was required. Graakallbanen is the only operating line left in Trondheim after what used to be quite an extensive tram network covering most of city prior to 1988.

Trondheim would be a nice town with focus on tram rather than smelly buses. Like from NTNU to city centre, from airport to city centre etc. There are several cities in Germany and Spain with the same population which is now expanding their lines.

Trondheim got northenmost tram. Its also one of the bigger northernmost cities, which means that it should have more plans about the enviroment arround the city.

I hope that they extend the tram for sure!

Congratulations Trondheim: I think we have the southern most tram system here in Melbourne, so I am sure you will become a sister city to us soon.

Differences between Trondheim and Melbourne

Population:

Trondheim: 165 191 (is ranked as Norways 3rd biggest city!)
Melbourne: 3,744,373 (is ranked as Australias 2nd biggest city!)

Funny, isnt it?

Trondheim is currently in the process of planning a BRT-like system around the urban area which is being marketed as Metrobus. It will not feature completely segregated busways (hence the "like"), but a number of thoroughfares will get their own bus lanes (marked in red on the map) and buses will be given priority in junctions. It will also result in longer, high capacity buses being introduced to the city. The project features the rebuilding and establishment of 41 stops, the building of 5 transfer points and 1 transport hub at Tiller.

The goal is to complete as much as possible before August 2019 when the current tender period on the operation of buses in Trondheim ends.
