It may be the only tram network in London, but with 27 million passengers every year, London Trams’ service linking Wimbledon with Beckenham has become a vital part of the capital’s vast transport network.
London Trams is part of Transport for London and uses a combination of on-street and segregated running along its 28km route, which also covers Croydon, Elmers End and New Addington.
In total it consists of 39 stops, including seven National Rail stations and more than 50 bus routes – figures which mean that the network’s fleet of 24 CR4000 trams and 12 Stadler Variobahn trams have to endure a heavy workload, with little maintenance downtime.
