Cheap for what it offers, efficient, comfortable (for a tram), and with an absolutely unbeatable view of the sea. We recommend getting a 10-journey card at the main ticket office at the train station.

With the snow this weekend it seemed sensible to use the trams, I did it was easy to use, fast service. I should imagine on a sunny day this would be ideal and cheap way to get around on.
