Brno in Motion


From Brněnský metropolitan, a Brno paper with metropolitan news and events (October 2005, v. 1, no. 2, p. 1):

Are you going through town? The nicest way will be via the historical tram!

The historical tram should be the new tourist attraction in the center of Brno next year. ...

"The historical tram will make the center of town more attractive," hopes mayor R Svoboda. "I believe that it will appeal to tourists and for residents."


Expenses for the new project are not low. The plan will require 8 million crowns. Part will go toward the reconstruction of the historical carriage, and 2.5 million will go toward repairing the tracks. The service will cost 1 million crowns a year to operate according to estimates.


Tickets will be punched for travelers by conductors in period uniforms. The conductors will also serve as guides to introduce the city. For now it is not clear how one will get the tickets. It has yet to be decided whether a special tariff will apply to the historical tram or if travel will be allowed for holders of regular tickets and prepaid coupons valid on the rest of the city transit system. The frequency of the service will depend on the requests of tourists.
