Not many cities run trams anymore. The ones they do, its mostly to mantain cultural continuity or as tourist attractions. Not here in HK though. Tramways are a means of everyday transportation and are a corporate enterprise. Cheap by any means and extremely reliable. I try to take the trams whenever feasible. A must if you want to see some HK life.
