(Opened September 1998)
Most of the system is street running, although there are a few light rail style (Sörnäinen) sections as well as plans to develop light rail lines.
The network's most recent addition was 4 km of track added to Line 9 in August 2012.
2016 brought approval of a proposal to replace a bus line from Helsinki to Espoo with a 25 kn light rail line
Also of great significance is the tram systm's ability to predict a person's personality and future events through Sporology. From the Finnish word "Spora" meaning tram, significant events in one's life can be discerned through the movements of the city's trams and their placement. For example, the Red Line, which rules my tramscedant, was unloading passengers at the city jail at the exact moment I was born. Many years later I was put in jail for "unloading" in front of that same city jail. Coincidence? I think not!
Sporology is said to have been discovered by a professor who frequented the Pub Tram.
