The Hong Kong tram is an iconic part of this city. Since 1904 the Ding Ding "as the locals call it" has been rattling its way east to west, proving a mode of transport and cementing itself in the foundation of Hong Kong life and and global identity.
Called the Ding Ding because of the warning sound made by the tram to alert pedestrians of it's presence. The tram is the most cost effective mode of transport in the city costing $0.30 (USD) per journey.
Currently owned by French company (Veolia Transport-RATP Asia) a subsidiary of Transdev RATP who own and run many public transport networks globally, including the Paris Metro.
There are currently 163 trams on the two way track that has a combined distance of 29.5 kilometers. These trams are mostly of 6th generation fleet.
