Abstract

Modern tram has been gradually applied to the public transportation in China due to its humanity, efficiency, ecology and environment-friendly. In the initial stage of development, however, nu-merous problems occurred in terms of function-orientation, route selection during initial imple-mentation, construction standards and project cost because of the lack in practical experience, and guidance in technical standards and criteria. Based on the analysis and thinking on modern trams that have been built or are being built in China, this paper provides discussion on key problems having occurred in the development and application of trams and puts forward its development trend.
