Geocache Description:


Bergen Light Rail

A light rail is a tram line that runs mostly separated from other traffic. Traffic lights gives it priority, so it can maintain speed. The last traditional tram in Bergen ended its scheduled traffic on New Year's Eve 1965. The idea of a light rail in Bergen originated already in the late sixties, but the construction of the light trail didn't start before January 2008. Stage 1 runs from the city park (Byparken) to Nesttun. The operations on this route started on June 22, 2010. There are plans for stage 2 and 3 that will extend the rail to Lagunen and the Airport respectively.

Bybanen

En bybane er en sporvognslinje der banen i stor grad er skilt fra andre trafikkårer. Sammen med prioritert ferdsel i lyskryss gjør dette at den kan holde høy fart. Den siste trikken i Bergen avsluttet sin rutetrafikk nyttårsaften 1965. Allerede mot slutten av 60-tallet oppstod tanken om en bybane i Bergen. Etter mange år med politisk dragkamp, ble byggingen av bybanen satt i gang i januar 2008. Byggetrinn 1 går fra Byparken til Nesttun. 22 juni 2010 ble det endelig bybanedrift på denne strekningen. Det foreligger planer om byggetrinn 2 og 3 som vil forlenge bybanen til henholdsvis Lagunen og Flesland.
