It is trips per year not passangers. Systems have no way of counting passangers accurately but they can count the number of times people board trains and buses. 25 000 000, while a lot for one part of a transit system, is not actually that much if the EU average of about 50% of the population commute by public transport in Zagreb.

If half a million people use the system 50 times in one year, then you have 25 million boardings. It really isn't that much when you think that many people use it over 365 times a year.

well if you put it that then the numbers are ok... just asking, where are those numbers came, what source... it would be silly just to give rough figures, cause there are many factors that depend on that... suburbs are tricky, there are cars, suburban buses, and on some part rail... hint is to understand that Zagreb suburban rail isn't connecting every place in surroundings... main rail goes west-northwest through centre towards east... and i'll tell approximately 2/3 or 3/4 of total passengers are commuting in that direction.
if there is a table with numbers, i couldn't find it, it would show the real status...

The TMK 2200 is a 100% low-floor tram that operates in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.
The tram is 32 meters long, in the three bogied sections with two fully suspended articulated sections, it has air-conditioning, cameras inside and outside (instead of rear view mirrors) and 43 computers. It can accommodate up to 202 passengers. Maximum speed is 70 km/h. The track brakes are applied if the driver's hand is removed from the controller if the tram is moving. The construction is based on the three section ADtranz low floor tram (GT6M/GT6N), the difference is that two suspended carbody sections are placed between three sections on bogies. Other transport companies also have been interested, since the TMK 2200 is cheaper than the Western European low floor trams, due to lower production costs. The tram is entirely guided by synchronous computers, it has bottom axles, and is equipped with cctv cameras.

Orgasmic, simply orgasmic.

Not everything must be Alstom, Siemens, AnsaldoBreda, Bombardier or CAF to mention some of the big ones within this business.

Admirable achievement, Croatian Friends!

This is probably what the York Region Viva BRT will look like when it is eventually converted into LRT.
