The tram on tires technology, TVR, which approximates what we would call today for top-level bus service, has become famous for having known a number of setbacks early in its history, because of an overly quick startup in 2000:
- insufficient testing and debugging
- problems of rolling stock reliability and ergonomics of the cockpit.
Finally, the final commissioning was delayed a year because of these disappointments.
The official rate since September 2006 is a tram every 5 minutes, but in fact the service is very irregular.
Despite the guiding rail the system uses parallel overhead lines, which were already in place from the old trolleybus system. So the tram can run on electricity even on sections without the monorail.
