The 2005 Cargotram schedule has been published. Besides continuing to pick up cumbersome waste items from the previous eight locations, the service will now also serve Irchel.
A summary of the Cargotram success story is:
April 2003: after an absence of 37 years, freight returns to the Zürich tram network. A trial service is introduced collecting waste from Laubegg, Letzigrund, Tiefenbrunnen and Wollishofen (each destination served once a month).
November 2003: Cargotram wins an innovation prize. The service becomes permanent.
January 2004: Four further destinations are added (Albisrieden, Hirzenbach, Seebach and Wartau).
