Very nice system.
Is the "train" section shared with national rail as well, or is it just used by trams?

In Spain:
First underground tramway section, tramway segregated and tram-train line
and fifth city with a massive transport in Spain (After Madrid, BCN, Valencia and Bilbao)

But it's so bad gestionated by FGV, we have too few trams and trains because the government spends the money in other things and citys :P

Only trams. The company of Tram Alicante is FGV (Trains of Valencian Government) and the national rail is operated by Adif.

not so ...


theres 2 "national" national companies , Renfe and FEVE

And then theres a couple of "national" regional companies like FGC , Euskotren and FGV

FGC is the regional operator in the Velencian comunity (a regional province/government of spain)

The tram-train shares its route with some regional trains (since the acess to the suburbs is thru the renewed tracks) ... as can be seen in these images:







This is an "old" (take it with a grain of salt here) series 2500 EMU.

Tram-trains doesn't share track with regional trains, because regional trains are high level and tram-trains the same level as a tramway, you can see the provisional platfform in high level and under it the tram-train platform, in low level.

FGV doesn't have anything in common with FEVE, only that FEVE was operating the line Alicante-Denia until 1986, when FEVE leave this line and FGV begins to operate it, now mostly network is refurbished and adapted for tramways and tram-trains, only the line 9 (Benidorm - Denia) is like when FEVE operates the line.

wait some years until Croatia joined the EU. They will give you - as they gave Spain - enough money to built a nice LRT network in any city exceeding a population of 100000!

The TRAM network is build with the money of Valencian Governament (over 750 million €), Alicante (capital) has over 325.000 people and a urban area over 430.000, the metropolitan area its over 730.000 people.

Now a days all the lines run every 30min unless L9 that runs every 60", as you can see in the tour video, theres a section with single track (is projected a tunel with 2 track in that section) it make imposible put more trains/tram-trains at our.

At night (only thursdays, fridays and saturdays) lines 1 and 3 changes it terminal station from Mercado to Porta del Mar, that stop is near the party zone so its more usefull, wach the map for a better understanding: http://www.fgvalicante.com/tram/pdf/TermometroTRAM.pdf

No.


FGC is the operator for Catalonia.
The regional operator for Comunitat Valenciana is FGV.
