Trains/Trams in Tauranga?

Can anyone tell me whether there is train or tram public transportation within Tauranga? I was looking on Google Maps and saw what looked like train lines running through the city (the grey and white lines) but I can't find any information or reference online.

Tauranga is a very small city. It has a railway line carrying freight to the port at Mount Maunganui but no passenger trains. There are buses.

Tauranga is the fifth largest city in New Zealand (behind Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington and Hamilton). It has a reasonably good bus service. Details can be found at http://www.baybus.co.nz.
