Last weekend there were some extra tramways and on Tuesday (St. George, bank holiday in Aragon)


This weekend frequencies will be enforced again:

Saturday 18:30 to 22:30, one tramway every 8 minutes instead of 10 minutes
Sunday 17:00 to 21:00, one tramway every 12 minutes instead of 15 minutes.


Just only for last weekend and this one. No more news but hope being permanently

Another picture of Tramway. It is in the middle of the city and maybe the most complicated square to reorganise traffic there.

Taken from a regional thread.

By the way, in november 2012 a SCC banner was about this square but looking from another point.

Picture taken this morning. It is one of the most central streets, almost all for pedestrians and tramway only.

May 1st is bank holiday in Spain and... Zaragoza tramway keeps on frequencies reinforcement while saturdays, sundays and bank holidays.

We had last two saturdays, last two sundays and on a bank holiday (April 23rd, St. George).

Tomorrow they will keep with only 12 minutes instead of 15 (for a regular sunday or bank holiday) from 17:00 to 21:00

Not definitely but they just keep on.

The "bad point" is that it is not indicated neither in the webpage neither anywhere except in the own stops.

10.00 a 13.30......7
13.30 a 17.00......6
17.00 a 20.00......5
20.00 a 22.00......7
22.00 a 00.00.....15

Saturday
05.00 a 08.00......20
08.00 a 18.30......10
18.30 a 22.30.......8
22.30 a 00.00......15

Sunday and Bank holidays
05.00 a 08.00.......20
08.00 a 17.30.......15

Alserrod, is the new tramway completely up to your and local populations expectations? Would you give it a very high mark for route, frequency and quality? In pictures it looks really good no doubt, but that's just pictures.

One picture (source: myself) made of Central Zaragoza-Delicias station (both commuter, long distance trains and buses).

It is made from a nice park just in the opossite side of the Ebro River (River is not seen in the picture, it would be just after the dark tree in the pic)

Regardless of what alserrod and other forumers from Zaragoza might say about the subject, I think it´s the best tramway in Spain, but I don´t like its seats, they´re a bit uncomfortable (to me).



As for the rest, as I said, top marks, but trams are starting to become overcrowded.

I strongly agree with 437.001. Well.... regarding seats I have to say that maybe one out of ten journeys or less I could sit there. It is a tramway thought for people travelling standing on.

According to overcrowding... absolutely true in several hours. There is a clause in the contract referred to frequencies increasing related to overcrowding indeed. They should have to evaluate a three months period and... they increased three parts of frequencies before these three months:
- Monday to Friday from 13:30 to 17:00
- Saturday from 18:30 to 22:30
- Sunday from 17:00 to 21:00

have taken better frequencies

and there are some schedules that should be improved too!

I almost forgot about this.

On June 19th, a group of six forumers (javiklleja, Drako84z, Escargot, Lois88, Charagones and me) visited the Valdespartera depot, located between Argualas and Los Olvidados. We learned some facts about the tram: It is currently the most sustainable of all trams in Spain and was a rare case of a construction completed under budget: it was estimated to cost €400 million, yet it opened ahead of schedule after having spent €355 million. We also knew how tram maintenance is done, and entered a tram cabin, among other things.

And last but not least, a photo of us:

A picture taken by forumer davilote.

Plaza de Aragón stop with two tramways there.

This square appeared (from a different point of view) in a SSC banner in November 2012

There weren't too many traffic congestion indeed. I do not know why but it was considered one of the best cities to drive and the worst Spanish city to park in the street (it is a high buildings based city, thus high density).

It is kwown that the total amount of traffic has decreased just a little. Not much, but it has.

But nowadays all the traffic is in the surroundings of city centre. This is... for crossing the city sometimes it was faster via city centre. Nowadays itsn't. Some streets are cut to traffic and if all traffic would go via the ones that keep opened, it will have a great congestion.
Hence... less traffic in city centre. Really few traffic.

All cars uses now inner and outer rings to cross the city or get the final destination...

Neighbourhoods will the tramway there do not use car to go to city centre. If bus is required, it's matter of opinion for everyone.
