About streetcars in Sapporo

The history of streetcars in Sapporo dates back more than 100 years. It began as a horse tramway in 1909.
The horse tramway was replaced by the streetcar operated by the private sector in 1918, and operation of the streetcar was transferred to the city in 1927. Since then, the streetcar has served as the citizens' most basic form of transportation.
The routes of the streetcar were shortened due to changes in road situations and the start of operation of the subway, but the routes were transformed in a loop in 2015, which made the streetcar easier to use. From the windows of a streetcar, you can overlook both the old townscape and new townscape and feel the atmosphere of the city of Sapporo.
Many of the cars currently in operation were manufactured more than 50 years ago, but they are still on active service.
Streetcars, which have run along with the progress of the city of Sapporo and form its landscape arousing poetic sentiment, will continue to support citizens' lives.
