Classic tram in Riga by Maksims Ter-Oganesovs

Tram (from the English. Tram (car, trolley) and way (path), the name originated, according to one version, from trolleys for transportation of coal in the mines of Great Britain) is a type of street and partly street rail public transport for transporting passengers along specified routes ( usually on electric), used primarily in cities.

The tram is one of the oldest types of urban passenger public transport, from those existing at the beginning of the 21st century [1] and originated in the first half of the 19th century – initially on horse-drawn traction.
