Historic tram

The tramways in Wrocław form one of the oldest[when?] tram systems in Wrocław in Poland. The tram system is operated by MPK Wrocław (Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Komunikacyjne Sp. z o.o. we Wrocławiu). The system consists of 23 lines with a total length of lines of 258.2 kilometres (160.4 mi). There are six depots and 20 loops. The system uses standard gauge (the spacing between the rails is 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 12 in)).

Types of vehicles[edit]

Currently four types of trams are operating in Wrocław: Konstal 105Na, Protram 204 WrAs, Protram 205 WrAs, and Škoda 16 T. The 105N type wagons are subjected to various upgrades (and after the upgrade they are marked 105NWr).

In the period from 1991–2004, no new trams were bought; only repairs and upgrades of models Konstal 105N and Konstal 105Na were performed. During 2005–2008, six 2-wagon Protram 204 WrAs and ten low-floor Protram 205 WrAs vechicles were bought, all produced by RMT Protram Wrocław. From December 2006 to November 2007, seventeen low-floor wagons Škoda 16 T were acquired.
