Bremen Tram Network

 System

Bremen - approx. 550,000 inhabitants

Tramway
- network length ~79 km
- 8 lines
- 1435 mm gauge
- some segregated sections on outer routes (built as part of a 1970s metro project), otherwise separate right-of-way only on newer extensions
- mostly low-floor rolling stock, but without providing full level access

- extensions under way for lines 1 and 8 from Huchting for 2024, mostly taking advantage of a disused railway corridor of the BTE (Bremen-Thedinghauser Eisenbahn) [Project Website]
