The following video is of the famous Stubaitalbahn Innsbruck-Fulpmes Tram, which starts in downtown Innsbruck and terminates in the mountains, servicing the small town of Fulpmes. Standard trams are used through out the journey, providing a seamless or no-transfer journey for the customer. The Stubaitalbahn Innsbruck-Fulpmes Tram is just further proof that light-rail can successfully operate on routes in the countryside, connecting urban centres. So when TransLink of Transportation Minister Falcon says there isn’t enough density for light-rail on the old BCE interurban rights of way, just mention the Stubaitalbahn; the Innsbruck-Fulpmes Tram.
Trams in the countryside – where’s all the density that’s supposed to be needed for light-rail?
