There are currently no functioning railways in Haiti and no rail connections with the neighbouring Dominican Republic.

History[edit]

However, between 1876 and about the 1970s, Haiti had various tramways and railways. A tram network operated in the capital, Port-au-Prince, between 1897 and 1932.[1] Two railway lines, Port-au-Prince – Léogâne (36 km) and Port-au-Prince – Manneville (43 km), along with some industrial lines, constituted the Haitian national rail network.
