Lisbon Trams, Portugal.

The Lisbon tramway network  serves the municipality of Lisbon. In operation since 1873, it presently comprises five urban lines. The construction of the Metro and the expansion of the Bus system began the slow decline of the network.

The five remaining lines only operate in the southern centre and west of the city. Despite the relevant tourist attraction, those lines are still very important because of sections of the city's topography that can only be crossed by small trams. Tram 15 also connects the entire western river front of the city to the centre and allows a better flow of passengers with the bus system towards an area that still is not served by the metro.
