No Lit-up Trams This Year
A decade-old tradition has been broken by the fact that no illuminated trams will run in the capital this year, according to business daily Világgazdaság.
In 2008, 14 years ago, BKV's lighted tram rolled out of the depot for the first time. Since then, the company has decorated some of its vehicles, including trolleys and hangers, with lights every Christmas season.
These routes had separate schedules and proved extremely popular, especially among children.
However, this year the decision was made that BKV will not put up the light garlands on any of its vehicles in the Zugló tram depot, the home of illuminated trams.
