Lodz – Poland’s third-largest city and capital of the Lodzkie region – was the first city to have electric trams in the country. Today, the Lodz tram system is made up of 22 lines that operate across a narrow gauge network (1 m/ 3 ft), with 230 stops and measuring over 124 km (77 mi) in track length.
There were never horse-drawn trams in Lodz, although, in the 19th century, the city had plans to establish a public transportation system based on them. The first electric tram track was opened here in 1898. In 1929, 17 lines of the total length of 46 km (28 mi) carried an average of 238,000 passengers a day.
The longest of lines, and in fact the longest tram line of all of Poland, is number 46, which has a length of 38 km (24 mi). Annually, the tram network has nearly 150 million passengers.
