The tramway in Piran, a coastal town in western Slovenia, was in use from 20 July 1912 until 31 August 1953. The tramline was replaced with a trolleybus line in 1953.

There was only one line, which had a length of 5,444 metres (3.38 mi). The building of the tramline in 1912 cost 150,000 Austro-Hungarian kronen. There were five red passenger trams that could carry up to 40 people and reached up to speeds of 26 km/h (16 mph). The electricity for the tram was produced by a plant at the nearby St. Bernardin.
