Croydon Tramlink[edit]

Main article: Tramlink

The current tram system has only been in operation since May 2000, although previously a service ran along the A23 up until 1951.[1]

Croydon Tramlink has 38 stops along 27 kilometres (17 mi) of track.[2] The system currently has 24 'Flexity Swift' trams in operation.

The tram tracks around Croydon follow 3 main spurs to Beckenham Junction, Wimbledon and Addington, and includes a one-way loop going around Croydon Town Centre where the trams arrive roughly every 1 to 6 minutes.[3]

Other tramways[edit]

A proposed north-south tramway in Central London, called Cross River Tram, has been cancelled for lack of funding in 2008. A scheme called City Tram has also been proposed by the City of London,[citation needed] linking Battersea and Hackney via Elephant and Castle and The City, but does not appear in any of TfL's transport plans.
