Today is the day! The works of our first tram line have finished and we can go from north to south of the city (12.8 km) in 40 minutes crossing the city-centre.

Here some photographs taken by the local newspaper Heraldo de Aragon.

A 30 seconds spot.

It is in Spanish but until the final there is only music

It finally says "today, I'm going in tramway"

In less than two weeks, and having several bank holidays in the middle, we can say that promised times are near to be correct.

Corner to corner it was said to take 40 minutes and several forumers have taken 41-42 minutes.

It is in the new stretch were they have to focus to get those 40 minutes. I made 2/3 of journey and took one minute more than promised.


Line is 12,8 km length.

Today, two news in Zaragoza bus network.

Line C2 has disappeared. It was really expected because the journey coincides 100% with new L1 tramway line. They are going to modify or erase some lines and they have started with this one.

Linea 59 has started service today. It is a short line that starts in the last tramway stop in the southern side of the city. Running every 30 minutes, it serves to a new neighbourhood. Users are able to make a free shuttle to tramway (and other lines within one hour) with the same fee paying with touchless

After three weeks of commercial service of tram line 1 of Zaragoza, these are the statistics of third week.



It seems that there was not significant variations in the number of passengers in the business days, while the users decreased at the weekend.

The total amount of passengers in the third week was 498,681, so the annual prediction taking into account this information, is approximately 26,000,000 of passengers.

From my humble point of view there are several aspects to improve. All of them requires just more drivers except one of them that requires extra tramways:

1- More capacity 7 to 10 while the week. It will require more tramways. Current frequency is five minutes. Enough... but they should put double composition tramway. Ten cars instead of five

2- More frequencies 13 to 15. Seems we will have it soon. Currently, 7 minutes frequency

3- More frequencies on weekends. Nowadays almost all the day, 10 minutes on saturdays and 15 on sundays.

4- Later last tramway. First one is at 5:00. OK. But last one is at 00:10 more or less. At least on weekends timetable should be enlarged.



At some other times they have enlarged some frequencies, but not enought. Last weekend we had an important football match and the put 7 minutes in advance to the match and 5 minutes after the match...... it was sunday evening and they were full, full, full.


Next tuesday is bank holiday in Aragon. St. George, the major day in the region. For this weekend, at sometimes they are going to improve the frequencies.

A very good news!

Wow!!!!, this picture was taken by forumer Perolk. It is not a render, neither a painting, neither... just a digital picture looking the best weather to make it and a little photoshop

It is according to a famous building in the city centre, but nowadays, as can be seen in the picture, tramway crosses that street (two years ago 2+1 car lanes with a huge traffic)
