Athens
Athens new tramway has been launched in 2004 before the Olympic Games, in order to integrate the metro system with a ground level service. Metro and tram interchange at Syntagma (metro lines 2 and 3), Neos Kosmo and Fix (metro line 2).
At the end of XIX century the Greek capital developed an horse tramway net (1882), which was soon electrified (1887). In the first decades of XX century this nework had a great expansion, but after the second world war it was constantly reduced (years '50s and '60s) before being totally closed (1977).
The new system consists in a section from the city center (Syntagma) to Mousson (passing through Nea Smyrni and Paleo Faliro), where the track branches in north-western (Faliriko Delta, Neo Faliro, Peace & Friendship Stadium) and south-eastern (Alimos, Helliniko, Glyfada and, since November 2007, Voulas) segments.
Tramway is also connected to suburban railways (line 1) at Peace & Friendship Stadium.
