There are only 2 tram routes (101,102) that will soon be replaced by buses, and one trolleybus on 48 route.

102 tram

48 trolleybus

for now only one tram route( no.100) that linked the railway station with Mamaia(Sat Vacanta) was replaced with buses. but, in the future-2 years max- the municipality wants to rid off the trams.
the trolleybusses are still working on 51 or 48 route i think, there are few trolleybusses left.

Constanţa: A desire named streetcar...
http://rinsider.club-feroviar.ro/en/...icol.php?id=19

Quote:
Constanţa is renouncing the tram. A drastic decision, whose course seems not to change. After Braşov, Constanţa is the second city to give up public rail transport, in a Europe that continues to support this means of transport, because it is environment-friendly, safe and efficient. It is a known fact that the European Commission, by adopting the Green Paper on Urban Transport – made public in September, last year – tries to promote among the citizens the public tram, metro and trolley transport as means of transport that do not disturb traffic and that have a reduced pollution rate. And here we have the Romanian cities, European starting with last year, that choose to put the tram out of service.

In Constanţa, the public tram passenger transport began to develop during 1905-1906. The Constanţa – Techirghiol route was the first route introduced, which ensured the tramcar transport (a vehicle with animal traction). Once the Mamaia resort was founded in 1906, the seasonal railway line was put into service, linking Constanţa and Mamaia. This line ensured a mix transport: passenger transport by day and freight transport by night. In November 1943, tram wagons were brought from Odessa, which ran on the Poşta Veche - Bd. Tomis - Bd. Mamaia - Spitalul Militar route and back until 1944, when they were removed from traffic and sent back to Odessa. This moment coincided with renouncing the public rail transport for an undetermined period of time, indeed, in the port-city on the shore of the Black Sea. In 1984, the tram was put into service once again on the streets of Constanţa.

One of the reasons that laid at the basis of this decision was represented by the industrial development that rapidly grew in the main Romanian port during this period. This was the time when the first tram line was inaugurated on the Gară - Sat Vacanţă route, which had a length of 11.8 km of simple rail. In the years that followed, 1984-1986, other two tram lines are introduced, which totalled 27.5 km of rail. A new line for the tram passenger transport was put into service on October 21st, 1996. This line had a length of 4.8 km of simple rail, but its life duration did not exceed one year.

Even the tram is a perishable good

Until 2004, Constanţa had three tram lines. However, this was the year when the municipality decided to give up one of the lines. Only two lines remained, taking over the necessary traffic. According to the decision of the Local Council of the Constanţa Town Hall of December 2007, all tram lines will be put out of service until September 2008 or until the beginning of 2009, at the latest. Then, the tram will only be a memory.

“The decision to remove the tram was taken not because there is somebody who no longer wants trams in Constanţa. The trams that are currently in service are Romanian trams, made after 1984, when the public rail transport was introduced for the first time in Constanţa, and Tatra KT4 trams made in the Czech Republic during 1976-1978. These trams are very old, and a capital repair is no longer profitable. On the other hand, aside from the old rolling stock fleet, the decision was also based on the running rail system. In 1984, the first tram line was put into service; soon after that, two other tram lines were introduced. The public rail transport system adopted that year, when there were no other possibilities, was the plate rail. Even then, this type of transport system was neither profitable, nor performant. It was because of this and according to existing regulations that capital repairs had to be done 20 years later, in 2004. Practically, a capital repair brings a 90% change in the running rail system”, declared during an interview Dan Astratinei, Deputy Director RATC Constanţa.

Bus vs. tram

Constanţa is the second city in Romania in importance and size, the main port of our country to the Black Sea and the largest port in the South-East of Europe. Its population exceeds 390.000 inhabitants. At this number, we add the inhabitants of the adjacent areas that are part of the Constanţa Metropolitan Area, as well as the inhabitants of the resorts on the coastline. A large part of the Constanţa inhabitants work inside the city, and mobility is very important. The city needs efficient means of transport that can ensure commuters the link with the railway. This urban congestion has to ensure the intermodality between the public and national railway transport. Public transport has, indeed, improved; Rail transport, however, has not. The strategy concerning the public rail transport in the Black Sea port has flaws...ecological flaws. Constanţa has now 19 transport lines, out of which only two will remain by trolley ; the rest will be by bus.

“The only solution for now was to replace trams with buses. The Constanţa Town Hall plans to purchase 65 new buses that will run on the tram lines which will soon be removed. The poor state of the existing running rail in Constanţa presents a high risk for tram running. The poor state of the trams and rail, together with the unsafe traffic, increase the degree of noise pollution through the vibrations created during running and disturb the life of the city inhabitants. These were the reasons that laid at the basis of the decision taken by the Local Council of Constanţa to renounce public rail transport”, explained the Deputy Director of RATC.

Despite of everything, the Constanţa Transport Operator ensures that there will be no problems in traffic. They are doing everything they can to respond in a positive manner to the need for transport in the Black Sea port.

Waiting for money

The Constanţa Metropolitan Area has numerous advantages that would offer the possibility to become an important area for economic and administrative development. Having a population of approximately 500 000 inhabitants and being made up of 14 localities, the Constanţa Metropolitan Area, which was founded in 2006, could have access to a large variety of financing possibilities, as other cities in the country have benefited from, through the constant implication of local authorities. But the exclusive aim has been, for now, to obtain non-reimbursable European funds.

“RATC has drawn up several studies and presented them to European commissions, but our projects have not yet been accepted. There have been no possibilities for obtaining non-reimbursable funds, not even with a 50% financing from the European Union. The only projects that might be accepted would be those based on loan financing, and these funds are reimbursable.”
Financing such large projects on public transport is not an easy thing to do. However, if the objectives are well-defined and if the authorities will be well-coordinated, there are countless examples demonstrating that the money problem has solution. Undoubtedly, the responsible parties inside the Town Hall, which we were not able to contact, will closely analyse these possibilities.


“We are well aware of the importance of this fast, efficient and economic means of transport. This is why, when the Town Hall will have the necessary money to make an investment, trams will once again run safely in the city”, concluded Dan Astratinei, on a positive note.
* poate unora va suna aiurea insa incep si eu sa cred ca tramvaiele nu-si mai au rostul in mijlocul unui bulevard ca Lapusneanu de exemplu. Nr. masinilor din oras a tot crescut, traficul e din ce in ce mai mare iar liniile alea de tramvai in mijlocul bulevardului mai mult incurca traficul masinilor/pietonilor. As fi preferat totusi troileibuze in locul lor, nu autobuze !

Asta pentru ca sistemul nu este pus la punct: masini v tramvai ... nici nu sint dubii cine cistiga. Sa ne gindim numai la numarul de pasageri transportat de tramvaie, poluare, parcari etc ... IMO toate orasele turistice (si nu numai) trebuie sa aiba ca prioritate transportul public

Troleibuzele sint intr-adevar o alternativa la tramvaie. Dar le-ar trebui o linie (lane) dedicata. Pentru ca transportul public nu-si are sens daca ramine blocat in/intre "transportul privat" ...

Sa fiu sincer mie mi-ar placea un oras in care sa nu existe decat metrou si autobuze (cel putin in centru), dar autobuze nepoluante, care sa functioneze pe hidrogen. Autobuzele sunt mai ieftine, se pot apropia de capacitatea tramvaielor de la noi daca sunt articulate si dublu articulate, nu necesita o infrastructura speciala (sine+catenare), reprezinta un sistem mult mai flexibil (traseul poate suferi modificari mult mai usor), se pot strecura mai usor samd.

Insa asta in perspectiva, cand motoarele pe baza de hidrogen vor deveni cu adevarat performante si accesibile.

Tramvaiele se preteaza in zonele periferice ale oraselor, sau doar pe anumite rute foarte aglomerate, insa doar cand sunt separate de restul traficului.

nebunul, ce parere ai despre Citaro pe hidrogen din Londra?

Boris on HYDROGEN BUSES

"WATER! That is all a hydrogen fuel cell bus releases into the air," says the TfL press release. "Clean, green and coming to a bus stop near you, they are the ultimate in environmentally-friendly buses."

Even if that were true, Ł1.2 million a bus (seven times more than a normal double-decker) seems rather a heavy price-tag for eco-friendship. TfL intends to buy 10 of the vehicles, with the aim of running one entire route with them by 2010.

Unfortunately, the claims to greenness are suspect. Hydrogen buses do have zero emissions at the tailpipe but to produce the hydrogen fuel takes huge quantities of electricity - which, in Britain, is mostly generated by burning coal.

TfL says that the buses will still generate 50 per cent less CO2, but according to the Energy Saving Trust, the buses' carbon footprint may in fact be little less than conventional diesels.

VERDICT: There are better and cheaper ways of delivering green transport than this: Ł12 million saved.

Hm... he may be right on this. However, technology evolves if it's being used, so I doubt this would still be a problem in the future. Like I said before - the aim should be to find more ways to make money and also produce clean energy, not trying to cut spendings and use less energy.

He says that in order to produce hydrogen, they use huge quantities of electricity, electricity that's mostly generated by coal plants. Well, therein lies the problem! If they'd have cleaner ways to produce this electricity, the consumption would be a smaller problem.

I realize this is not Boris' problem at all, I'm just saying that this "cut spendings & consumption" way of seeing things is not the brightest and I see it in action in our country too. Hell, I see it in action in "my" house too... and it pisses me off.

AFAI concerned we need to be a step ahead of our times … and this is what Boris and Oprescu are not … they’re average individuals with limited vision. That’s why they do not deserve to be (our) leaders … I’d say “aim at the sun and you may not reach it; but your arrow will fly far higher than if aimed at an object on a level with yourself” J.

http://www.jurnalul.ro/articol_73602...it_europa.html
"Un tramvai numit Europa"

La Iasi ajung vagoane ce nu seamana a nimic si dupa luni de munca ies din depou mandre si stralucitoare ca acum un secol.
Trebuie sa scoti dintr-un maldar de lemne, unele putrezite si amestecate cu diverse mucegaiuri si ciuperci, elementele originale. Cand primesti cate doua-trei containere cu fiare ruginite parca ti-e si frica sa pui mana, spune Dorian Geba, seful sectiei de restaurare a Regiei Autonome de Transport Public Iasi. Aici a fost refacut si "vagonul lui Hitler", de fapt un tramvai ce fusese folosit iarna, la Berlin, pentru deszapezire si care purtase afise de propaganda nazista ce-i faceau reclama führerului si regimului sau. Acum, partenerul austriac al RATP, care este presedintele Federatiei Europene a Muzeelor de Cale Ferata, vrea ca la Iasi sa fie refacut vagonul de promenada al kaiserului Frantz Josef: "Vagonul avea scheletul din stejar si structura din lemn de trandafir. Erau patru fotolii mari, decorate cu capete de leu, imbracate intr-un plus cu ornamentatii extraordinare. Avea incalzire cu sobe din fonta, cu brizbizuri, elemente florale si manere din fildes si multe sisteme de ventilatie pentru a crea confort in interior. Cele patru geamuri mari laterale erau fumurii". Geba a inceput negocierile si este intr-un stadiu avansat privind si restaurarea unui vagon mortuar, seria 2001, tot al lui Frantz Josef.
AUR PE ROTI. Un luxos vagon restaurat la Iasi, ce a implinit 113 ani, circula acum in Viena. Are o ornamentatie extraordinara, realizata cu foita de aur, si poarta stema Austriei – acvila bicefala. Negrul mahonului se impleteste cu albul paltinului, alternand culorile scaunelor, iar furnirul din rachita ruseasca ii da un aer aristocratic. Tramvaiul straluceste pe dinafara, foita din aur protejata de lacul transparent transformandu-l intr-o bijuterie pe sine. Are storuri la geamuri, ce pot fi trase de manerele incarcate de ornamentatii. Curelele de care se tin calatorii sunt din piele, iar toate piesele functionale din vagon – manere de actionare a usilor, elemente de prindere a geamurilor – sunt din bronz, slefuite.

MUNCA DE SISIF.
Geba spune ca el si lucratorii sai au intrat in Europa nu acum, ci in urma cu 8 ani, datorita restaurarilor. "Cand am participat la un congres, cei care erau acolo si-au facut cruce afland cati oameni se ocupa la noi de restaurarea unui vagon. In alte tari se formeaza echipe de profesori universitari, de doctori". Restaurarea e grea, mai ales ca orice mica abatere inseamna scaderea calitatii, iar beneficiarii sunt foarte pretentiosi. Geba spune ca mari probleme sunt si cu testarea vagoanelor. Ecartamentul liniilor de tramvai din Iasi este de 1.000 de mm, in timp ce acela din Viena are 1.435 mm, asa ca tramvaiele austriece nu pot fi scose pe strazile Iasiului: "Inainte de a trimite vagoanele, le facem un control vizual, dar nu o data, ci de 20 de ori, sa nu scapam nimic care ar implica riscuri. Pana acum, toate cele opt tramvaie pe care le-am facut aici au corespuns." La primul vagon a avut insa o critica referitoare la niste holsuruburi care nu erau suficient de adanc infipte in lemn: "Inspectorul care verifica respectarea adevarului istoric a masurat toate cotele vagonului si a verificat daca holsuruburile cu pricina erau exact ca cele initiale."

1900, REINVENTAT
Pentru a respecta intocmai planurile vagoanelor de acum un secol, este nevoie de piese ce nu se mai fabrica sau care se gasesc foarte greu. "De exemplu, trebuie sa ne ingrijim sa cumparam de acum cherestea de stejar, ca sa se usuce in timp si sa o folosim peste ani. Si asta pentru ca eu nu folosesc lemn uscat fortat, ci natural, cum se facea la 1900." Meseria de restaurare implica si infinit de multa rabdare: "Stai la un holsurub si o ora pana sa-l dai afara, si mai gasesti si un element care este plin de gauri ce trebuie sa le umpli, sa le lipesti, apoi sa slefuiesti pana aduci totul la acelasi nivel. Apoi, fiecare element de lemn e uns cu ulei de in amestecat cu sacaz si impregnat. Straturile de lac se dau cate trei, iar dupa fiecare lacurire se face o slefuire de mare finete, astfel incat, la sfarsit, lacul sa transforme vopseaua intr-o oglinda".

INCEPUTUL
Dorian Geba se lauda cu faptul ca Iasiul este singurul loc din Europa unde se desfasoara, intr-o sectie aparte, restaurarea tramvaielor, si ca treaba se face repede si bine. "In timp ce noi restauram zece vagoane, cei din strainatate daca pun pe picioare doua", spune Geba. Totul a pornit in 1998, cand RATP aniversa un secol de existenta. Angajatii regiei au facut atunci din doua vechi tramvaie de maturat strazile un vagon de epoca cochet. "Sa faci o piesa care nu-i originala inseamna sa realizezi un model din ceara, sa-l torni, apoi sa-l iei cu mana la slefuit fara sa folosesti nici un utilaj. Cele mai dificile sunt baterea niturilor, pentru ca trebuia s-o facem ca in 1900, si realizarea partii din lemn, astfel incat imbinarile, lipite cu clei de oase, si nu cu aracet, sa iasa perfect." Atunci cand se intalneste cu experti in domeniu, inginerul este intrebat de unde gaseste modelele dupa care lucreaza. "Le spun ca trebuie facuta proiectare tehnologica, apoi se realizeaza proiecte pentru fiecare piesa componenta in parte si ca se munceste la sute de desene." De altfel, unul dintre vagoane a fost restaurat doar pe baza unor fotografii de epoca.

TRAM-WAY
In 1795, in minele de carbune din Scotia, inginerul Tram monta sine metalice pe care sa circule mai usor vagonetele. Sinelor li s-a zis "Tram-way", "sinele lui Tram". In 1832, in New York se folosea "calea lui Tram". Modelul a fost introdus in 1856, la Paris, apoi s-a extins in toata Europa. In 1879, Werner von Siemens a realizat, la Berlin, un vagon cu un motor pus pe patru roti si cu transmisie la acele roti. Alimentarea se facea prin sinele incarcate electric. Numai ca multi cai de la trasuri calcau pe cele doua sine si se electrocutau, iar oamenilor le era frica sa le traverseze. A aparut o stagnare in dezvoltarea tramvaiului electric, pana in 1891, cand un american a realizat pantograful. Primul oras european care l-a introdus a fost Halle din Germania, in 1892. Au urmat Viena si Bucurestiul"
Evident, printre ce scrie acolo e si putina gargara despre un tramvai al lui Hitler, care a circulat la Berlin. De unde Berlin, daca era la Viena? Iar Hitler nu mai folosea tramvaiul de cand avansase de la caporal la comandant suprem. Slava Domnului ca Legiunea si Capitanul se plimbau probabil cu masini, imbracati in hainele acelea din piele, cu palarii si pistoale, precum Paraipan din filmele lui Sergiu Nicolaescu. Altfel, poate ca tramvaiul de epoca din Iasi era astazi tot maturator de zapada, daca mai era.

Transport gratuit cu maşina-tricicletă în centru
de Dora Mircea-Radu | 29 iunie 2008

[IMG]http://i31.************/29dzty9.jpg[/IMG]


Clujenii vor avea la dispoziţie, din toamnă, un mijloc de transport în comun gratuit şi atipic.

PedicapAdvertising este un serviciu de transport în comun ecologic care va fi disponibil pentru început în zona centrală a municipiului. Orice persoană de pe stradă va putea opri un PedicapDriver pentru a fi transportată la orice adresă din zona centrală cu PedicapMobilul.

Acesta din urmă este un triciclu cu două locuri pentru pasageri şi unul pentru şofer. PedicapMobilul va putea fi personalizat în funcţie de cerinţele clientului care achiziţionează spaţiul publicitar pus la dispoziţie pe caroserie.

Budapest-Constanta high speed rail to be completed in 2020

Bucharest, July 2 /Rompres/

Quote:
- The construction of the Budapest - Constanta high sped rail will take about 12 years and according to estimations, the project's execution will be completed in 2020, reads a report remitted to Rompres by the Romanian Rail Company - CFR SA.

The cost of the project stands around eight billion euro. According to CFR, if continuous financing is ensured, works will keep to the execution schedule; they are due to kick off in about four years and end in five to eight years.

In November 2007, on the occasion of a joint government meeting, Romania and Hungary signed an agreement for the construction of this railway. The two Transportation Ministries chose the Budapest - Bucharest - Constanta route in order to integrate the two states in the international high-speed rail system that links all large European cities.

The plan of the Romanian and Hungarian authorities follows the emergence of a European project for the construction of a high-speed line linking Strasbourg (France) to Hungary's Budapest. The line is supposed to cross Frankfurt, Munich and Vienna. As a result of recent lobby by Budapest authorities, the Vienna - Budapest segment was also included in the project, which will benefit from European funding as well.

'Expressed in 2006 prices, one kilometer of high-speed rail costs ten million euro in the plain and 40 million euro in mountain areas. Costs get higher if tunnels also need to be built. Such a rail connection highly benefits economy and citizens as well, because it provides a rapid alternative to road transportation,' Alstom Transport Romania director Gabriel Stanciu told Rompres.

Taking in consideration that the distance between Bucharest and Budapest is 800 km, the necessary investment would amount to eight billion euro. Trains will run on the track at speeds between 220 and 250 kph.

The milestones of the CFR schedule are as follows: the pre-feasibility study should be worked out by the end of the year and the feasibility study should follow in 2009; procedures for the selection of a contractor should be organized most likely in 2010 or 2011 at the latest.

More than 5,500 km of high-speed railway are being operated in Europe, another 3,400 kilometers of rail are under construction and 8,500 km of are now being designed. ROMPRES

France Embassador to Romania - Henry Paul: France interested to help Romania's infrastructure

I listened to his interview and he said that France is prepared to incentivise French motorway and railway construction companies to invest in Romania's infrastructure.

Quote:

Francezii sunt interesaţi să investească în infrastructura românească


Francezii vor să investească în infrastructura românească. La noi, economia are mult de suferit din cauza stării drumurilor care descurajază tocmai intrarea capitalului străin. Ambasadorul Franţei la Bucureşti, Henri Paul, a declarat pentru The Money Channel că, la ora actuală, şi inflaţia le dă mari bătăi de cap investitorilor.

Oamenii de afaceri francezi sunt pregătiţi să parieze pe oportunităţile de investiţii în infrastructura românească. Ei se aşteaptă ca acest domeniu să aducă mari profituri, cu condiţia ca el să se bucure de atenţia autorităţilor de la Bucureşti. În plus, viitorul economic al ţării noastre depinde de îmbunătăţirea căilor de comunicaţie.

"Eu sper că în domeniul rutier vom putea fi mai prezenţi decât acum. Cred că România trebuie să investească în infrastructură. Banii care există trebuie să investiţi pe termen lung, pentru viitor, în infrastructura feroviară, în infrastructura rutieră. Iată domenii în care este nevoie de bani pentru viitorul României", a declarat Henri Paul, Ambasadorul Franţei la Bucureşti.

Henri Paul consideră că, după integrarea în Uniunea Europeană, ţara noastră a devenit o ţintă de încredere pentru investitorii străini. În plus, creşterea economică de care s-a bucurat România ar putea umple de invidie aproape orice stat membru, spune ambasadorul francez. Cu toate acestea, în ultimele luni, oamenii de afaceri sunt tot mai îngrijoraţi din cauza inflaţiei.

"Sunt riscuri care vin din inflaţie. Inflaţia este importată odată cu preţul produselor alimentare, cu preţul energiei. Dar inflaţia vine, de asemenea, din creşterile salariale. Trebuie să fiţi atenţi pentru ca măririle de salarii să nu relanseze un ciclu inflaţionist pe care România l-a cunoscut în trecut, care este distrugător pentru economie şi care va produce nelinişte", a adăugat ambasadorul Franţei al Bucureşti.

Cele mai mari investiţii franceze în România sunt în domeniile auto, hotelier şi de retail.
