This summer, HK Tramways is thrilled to announce our iconic tram system has just been awarded the Guinness World Records™ title of the “largest double-decker tram fleet in service (最大的服務中的雙層電車車隊)”!
Turning into 117-year-old in July 2021, HK Tramways now owns the world’s most unique fleet with the largest number of double-decker tram (165 tramcars) in service, carrying up to 200,000 passengers every day. Apart from the award ceremony held, a series of city-wide celebrations such as a pop-up store and featured crossovers will be held to share the world-class honour and joy with fellow citizens and supporters around the globe.
Pride of the City,
Pride for every “ONE”
“The double-deck system” refers to the tram system of running on gauge tracks with trolley poles and operating on a double-decker basis.
“The double-deck system” refers to the tram system of running on gauge tracks with trolley poles and operating on a double-decker basis. Other examples of the double-decker are the UK Blackpool Tram and Egypt Alexandria Tram. The Guinness World Records™ Tilte of HK Tramways is not only a recognition to this local iconic mobile landmark but also an appreciation of the collective effort contributed by everyone along the Tramways’ journey.
There might be a bunch of world records made by incredible individuals, but for HK Tramways’, every individual counts.
From every tiny mechanical part of the tram, every tramcar built in the depot, every sweat of our motormen, every precise decision made by our craftsman, every creative input by our fans in the community, every support casted by the commuting choice of our passengers, to all the smiles we shared on the tram - they all contribute to the success of Tramways today, creating such a remarkable achievement we can all share together.
