Take tram No 68 for a guided tour of Hong Kong history
27 February 2016
South China Morning Post

Did you know Happy Valley was sarcastically named that by the British because of the thousands of malaria victims buried in the neighbourhood during the early days of colonial rule, in the 1840s? Or that the Bank of China building in Central, built in 1985, was criticised by fung shui masters for its negative sharp shapes?

These are just some of the stories Hong Kong Tramways is sharing with passengers on its TramOramic Tour, the city's first sightseeing tram tour.

Launched last month, the 1920s-style heritage tram, with open-top upper deck and vintage-style lower deck (complete with tram captain and an attendant dressed in period costume), is a stylish vehicle on which to learn about the city's history. Through headphones, passengers can hear tales of local life and history narrated in one of eight languages.

A video comparing past and present Hong Kong plays on-board the tram, which can carry 36 passengers, and there is a "heritage corner", with old pictures and tram souvenirs. Trivia from the 111-year history of the ding dings, as the city's trams are affectionately known, is also shared (in the absence of a food break, drivers would eat "red light meals", gulping down food only when stopped at traffic lights).

The tour on the No68 tram costs HK$95 per adult and HK$65 for senior citizens and children aged four to 11. There's a discount for holders of a Hong Kong identity card. The fare includes a two-day pass for unlimited travel on the Tramways' regular services. The TramOramic Tour departs six times a day, 365 days a year, travelling between Western Market, in Sheung Wan, and the Causeway Bay terminus, and swinging through the Happy Valley loop.

Tickets are available onboard and at hktramways.com/en/tramoramic.

Ding ding! All aboard for a moving art experience
13 March 2016
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto aka Vhils has transformed a tram into a moving art object by carving portraits of Hong Kong people into layers of posters applied to the vehicle's facade.

Vhils, 29, who opened a studio in Hong Kong in September, is getting ready for his first solo exhibition in the city, "Debris", which will open on March 22 on the rooftop of Central Pier 4.

But since yesterday Hongkongers can admire the work of one of the most renowned contemporary urban artists without going to a gallery.

"It's the perfect platform for me, because it's a piece that's in the city that also moves and reaches people who probably would never go to a gallery or a museum," he said. "I believe public art can give to the city something important, especially in current times," said Vhils, whose work aims to spark reflection on the impact of development and urbanisation around the world.

It took Vhils about two full days to bring the tram, currently running between Whitty Street depot and North Point, to life.

"The tram had a billboard. We collected several posters around town over the past six months and we pasted several layers on the top of it," he explained.

"Then we had a last layer in white and we carved onto it. It's not really a painting or a collage. It's more of a sculpture made out of layers of chaos that the city *produced."

The special tram will run every day until April 10. But this is not going to be the only chance to randomly bump into Vhils' work. He is also planning to carve portraits on at least three public walls and do other interventions on Hong Kong island and Kowloon.

Tram operator gets on track with Citymapper app
29 March 2016
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Hong Kong Tramways is teaming up with popular transport app *Citymapper, sharing free real-time operational data in a bid to lure more passengers to the city's oldest transport service.

It's one of a series of upgrades the tram operator is planning to roll out this year.

Next month, it will launch a new schedule that will reduce passenger waiting times by 4 per cent on weekdays, 7 per cent on Saturdays, and 10 per cent on Sundays, according to managing director Emmanuel Vivant.

Once the new schedule is in place, the operator is looking to develop internal software - in collaboration with Chinese University - to dispatch trams to match the schedule as punctually as *possible. "The plan is using the same resources but in an efficient way," Vivant said.

The link-up with Citymapper comes as the tram operator tries to win back passengers amid stiff competition from rail operator MTR on overlapping routes.

Citymapper, which landed in Hong Kong last August, combines information from major public transport operators to help users get to their destinations as fast as possible with best routes, push-up alerts and real-time updates.

The tram data is gathered from 600 tags buried along the tracks since 2012 to build its real-time positioning system, which will also be upgraded in May.

Live tram data could help the application's users "get a better idea of their total journey time, including waiting time for trams, updated every minute," said Gene Soo, general manager of Citymapper Hong Kong. Information on other public transport modes is based on their schedules.
