“The Next Generation Tram” is a rail borne vehicle, lighter than a train and differs from other forms of locomotion, as the tracks are embedded in the street. It has a capacity to accommodate 120 passengers at one time, has ground-level design and will operate at speeds of 40 km/h. The service will be free for the disabled and students, reported Malaysian National News Agency Bernama.
Mrails International will design, construct, finance, operate, maintain and supervise the road tramway and tramcar operations for 25 years. The company -which intends to export the project to other cities in the country as well as overseas- expects initially a 40,000 ridership daily.
