ZAGREB | Public Transport

Good afternoon everybody! I would like to present you the public transport in Zagreb. Zagreb PT consists of:

a) Trams
b) Buses
c) Suburban rail
d) A funicular
e) A cable car

Trams, the funicular and the cable car to the Sljeme mtn. above Zagreb are operated by ZET (Zagrebački električni tramvaj; Zagreb Electric Tram; www.zet.hr), suburban rail is operated by HŽ (Hrvatske željeznice; Croatian Railways; www.hznet.hr). all city buses are operated by ZET, while suburban buses can be operated by some private companies, too.

First part of this report will be rail vehicles: suburban rail, trams and the funicular.

Suburban rail

Suburban rail is operated by the 6 111 series of the HŽ EMU's. Currently, there are 21 of them, and they usually drive solo, rarely can they be seen coupled (because not all the stations are long enough, yet). They run mostly E-W through the city.















Not all stations and trains are so nice (infact, few are), but the situation is improving, with rebuilding (and prolonging) the stations, and modernizing the trains. Lately a lot has been said about buying new trains (which is an urgent need), but nothing specific yet.

Among the railfans, the trains are called "Mađar" (The Hungarian), because they've been produced by Ganz Mavag in Budapest.


Trams



First electric tram was inaugurated 18.8.1910. Currently there are 8 types of trams in operation.

1. Type 101 ("Stojadin"). Produced by ZET/ĐĐ Đuro Đaković, Slavonski Brod, Croatia







In service from 1957 (first prototype 30.4.1951). 31 left, disappearing.

2. Type 201 ("Bik"). Produced by Đuro Đaković, Slavonski Brod, Croatia







In service from 22.1.1974. 18 left.

3. Type 301 - ČKD KT4 ("Katica"). Produced by ČKD Praha, Czech Republic







3a. 351 - ČKD KT4, thyristorized



In service from 1985. 51 in operation.

4. Type 401 - ČKD T4 ("Čeh")

Old livery:



New livery:



Often with commercials:



In service from 31.1.1977. 87 in operation.

5. Type 900. Produced by ĐĐ in the 80's. In service from 23.3.1993. There's only one, the prototype. Mass production never happened.



6. Type 901 - Düwag GT6 ("Genšer"). Came from Mannheim (Germany) in the 90's. There are two types. 5 trams called GT6 "Mannheimer" are slightly different (and include airconditioning ) - second picture








15 + 5 left. Disappearing.

7. Type 2100 ("Nova 17"). Produced by Končar (Zagreb, Croatia) from 1994, prototype 2101 (1994.) slightly differs from the rest of the series. These trams derived from the Type 201.











In service from 1994. 16 in operation.

8. Type 2200. Produced by Crotram consortium (Končar + TŽV Gredelj, Zagreb, Croatia).

















( Picture by NT2200 - http://www.zeljeznice.net/forum/view...ghlight=#79617 )

In service from 2005. Currently 57 in operation (of 140 ordered)


These have been ALL the types used in Zagreb. I haven't mentioned the museum trams and the scrapped prototypes (if there will be an interest, tell me )


The typical tram station in Zagreb looks like this:






Some misc photos:

Two Czechs:



Usual traffic in the city (cars everywhere, disturbing the tram traffic )




95% of the tracks in the streets look like this:





Mostly in a good condition, some parts need repairing, though.



The funicular


It is the shortest funicular in the world, connecting the Gornji grad (Upper town) with Ilica St.







Most of the pics are from today

Hope you enjoyed!

edit. picture DSC_3104.jpg is not from 2007, but from 2006, my bad

After a pretty long time, I'm back

ZET buses, all the buses for public transport are made by M.A.N. and Mercedes-Benz.


......
Old stuff, to be replaced through the next 10-12 months, most of them are driving on suburban routes outside of Zagreb, so they can be hard to find sometimes.

MAN SL 200 (only 7 left, and disappearing)


MAN / Avtomontaža SU 220 (only 1 still in service)


MAN / Avtomontaža SG 220 (16 left)


Mercedes-Benz O 305 (a few left, maybe 5)
Mercedes-Benz O 305 G (still numerous, around 25-30, but they haven't got much time left)


MAN SL 202 (16 left)


MAN SG 242 (4 left)


Mercedes-Benz O 405 (3 pieces)



....
Not-so-old ones, mostly 1994-1998, all that were bought in operation, except for three of them

MAN NG 272/312 (A11) - 1994-1998 the first low-floor buses in Zagreb (NG 312 same as NG 272, only with more powerful engines), 32 pieces bought, one incidentally burnt



MAN NM 152 (A05), 1994, four pieces bought, one sold

MAN / Eurobus EL 252/202/262 F (A17) - 1995-2000, body built by Eurobus Zagreb (now bankrupt), one of them built by TAZ Zagreb (also bankrupt); 12 pieces together


Mercedes-Benz O 405 GN - 1995-1998, 25 pieces



MAN NM 222.2 - 1998, only 2 bought for the narrow streets in the center of the town


Mercedes-Benz / TAZ O 405 N - 1998, built by TAZ Zagreb, 5 pieces


Mercedes-Benz O 405 N, 1999 - 20 pieces bought, one burnt




...
Newer stuff, all that were bought in use

MAN NL 263 (A21), 1999, 20 pieces
MAN NL 263 (A21) (new livery), 2003, 14 pieces




Mercedes-Benz Citaro (O 530), 2003-2004, 29 pieces



MAN NG 313 (A23), 2003-2004, 12 pieces



MAN SL 283 (A74), 2004; 8, bought for suburban transport


Mercedes-Benz Conecto (O 345); 2005, 8, also bought for suburban transport


Mercedes-Benz Citaro G (O 530 G), 2003,2006, 12 pieces



MAN NM 223.2, 2006, 2 pieces

b) Buses
c) Suburban rail
d) A funicular
e) A cable car
L-R-T

Hopefully, but no specific dates yet

And last, but not least: The Sljeme Cable car! Built in 1963; one can wonder how it can still be operating. A miracle

It is about to be replaced next year since (afaik) this is the last year that it can operate by law.



Nice views to the city (when there are no clouds like on this picture )

Hehe, those MAN busses is nostalgy for me. When I was younger, they were everywhere in Oslo. I dont remember when they changed.. I think it was in 1992 or something.

They have this typical MAN engine sound, hehe
