Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
The tram on tires technology, TVR, which approximates what we would call today for top-level bus service, has become famous for having known a number of setbacks early in its history, because of an overly quick startup in 2000:
insufficient testing and debugging
problems of rolling stock reliability and ergonomics of the cockpit.
Finally, the final commissioning was delayed a year because of these disappointments.
The official rate since September 2006 is a tram every 5 minutes, but in fact the service is very irregular.
