21st century life on our Island will need reliable passenger transport for the islander
and the tourist.
Translohr trams can make the difference!

This latest generation of electric Translohr trams are ideal for the Island and could
transform passenger transport on the Isle of Wight.
Using small fully crewed Translohr trams on a regular 30 minute frequency, we calculate
that a new line between Sandown, Newport and Cowes would, once built, be viable and
would not require any Local or Central Government financial subsidy except for existing
local student & OAP deals.
The new tramline would be capable of supporting the Islands commuters both to Southampton
and London. For the visitor it would boast a direct link to the islands capital town
and large holiday destination. Coupled with this it could remove over 2.5 million
cars annually from the Sandown to Cowes corridor by 2016.

local UK area! We want to get it right for you.
