Origins and Demise

As Novi Sad developed, the need for mass transit grew. In 1868 the first plans for transporting people in chariots was present. As time went on the city grew more and the idea of installing a tram began to take form.[1] Electricity was produced in the city starting in 1910, which allowed for the development of the electric tram which opened the following year.[2] Initially there were 19 tram cars in the system, most of which were produced by the Ganz factory in Budapest. A couple were produced in Germany. Later on three more from the city of Slavonski Brod were obtained.[3] The tracks were 1.435 meters wide.[4] The city continued expanding as it became the center of the Danube Banovina. In 1930 the city bought three buses, which became competition to the tram. Bombing of a power-plant during World War II, in 1944, knocked the Tram out of operation. Tram transport was once again reinstated on May 25, 1945. The trams continued to be used until 1958, when they got replaced by buses.[5] It is fair to say that the buses pushed the tram out of operation.[6]

Despite it being gone, there are still ideas to bring it back in the future.[7]

Lines

There were two lines in the system.

  • Line one, known as the white line, went from the Futoška Kapija to Termin Streen.[8] This route went along the Temerin street, beside the Vladicanski Dvor through the center of the town, towards the banja and hospital where the end of the city used to be.[9] An additional route went on this line, known as the Blue route went from Kupatila to Čenerja.[10]
  • Line two, known as the green line,[11] went from where the former railway station used to be (currently the limanska market) to the end of the dunav street, which is by the coast of the Danube river.[12]
