WORLDKINGS - Worldkings News - Australia Records Institute (AURI) Melbourne tram route 75: World’s longest intra-city tram route


( Melbourne tram route 75 is the world’s longest intra-city tram route which runs 22.8 km.

Trams have operated continuously in Melbourne since 1885. Since then they have become a distinctive part of Melbourne's character and feature in tourism and travel advertising. The system is the largest operational urban tram network in the world. Trams are the second most used form of public transport in overall boardings in Melbourne after the commuter railway network, with a total of 206 million passenger trips in 2017–18.

Melbourne tram route 75 is operated by Yarra Trams on the Melbourne tram network from Vermont South to Central Pier. The 22.8-kilometer route is operated out of Camberwell depot with A and B-class trams.

The origins of route 75 lie in separate tram lines, Australia's first cable tram from Bourke Street to Hawthorn Bridge and a horse tram from Hawthorn Bridge to Auburn Road, which was converted to an electric line and extended over many years to its current terminus at Vermont South.

Melbourne tram route 75 is the world’s longest intra-city tram route which runs 22.8 km from Vermont South, in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, to the city's central business district. The Greater Manchester Tram network's Rochdale-East Didsbury Route measures 23.8 km from the beginning of the route to the end, however, only a short section of the route as it passes through the city center is actually shared with motor vehicle traffic. The rest of the line's length runs through old railway viaducts separated from vehicles.
