This line was formed on March 14 2011, to replace tram 23 and tram 24. Tram 23 followed the same route, as well as tram 24 between Vanderkindere and Princesse Elisabeth/Prinses Elizabeth, where it deviated towards Schaarbeek railway station, 1 stop further. Together with tram lines 3 and 4, it is one of three 'chrono' lines, which means that this line is served with low-floor high-capacity trams with a high frequency. The line number was therefore also altered to line 7, which shows that it is either a metro line or a chrono line.
During the daytime, a tram passes every 7½ minutes, rising to every 6 minutes during peak hours.
