Trams in Alexandria
The Alexandria tramway network serves the city of Alexandria, Egypt. It began operating in 1863, and consists of 20 lines operating on 32 kilometers (20 mi) of track, serving 140 stops. It is one of only a few tram systems in the world that uses double-deck cars; other examples are in Blackpool in the UK and Hong Kong. The system is 1,435 mm (4 ft 8+1⁄2 in) standard gauge.
The license to build a tramway system was issued on 16 August 1860, and the first line of the network began operating in on 8 January 1863. In addition to the Al Raml line there is an extensive network of tram lines running in the streets of central and western Alexandria.
As of 2019, the price of a single tram ride depends on the standard of the tramcar. If the tram does not have curtains (usually the last carriage), the price is L.E. 1. For a carriage with curtains, the price is L.E. 2. A special "Tram Café" was inaugurated in 2015, on which a fare of L.E. 5 is charged.
