A highly popular continuously growing conventional tram system, built with some elements of a light rail. Sharp-looking AnsaldoBreda Sirio trams give the system a modern vibe and a highly positive image. 2-car trains and single cars are operated at identical intervals, which creates some crowding. New cars are on order. The Phase II of the system is under construction. The Phase III, a part of the 2nd line, is in active planning. Pre-boarding fare collection with fenced-off platforms. All stops have numbers assigned to them. These numbers are indicated on tram's route displays to identify a destination.
