I was very interested and encouraged to learn that there is a Bath Trams group actively promoting trams in the city, especially after having lived in Basel, Switzerland for eight years.
In that time I made full use of its long-standing tram system to go to work, journey to the city and for pleasure and I can definitely say that the experience was very positive because they take precedence over the other road vehicles, so the trams were always on time. If, in the unlikely case that one was a few seconds late, the Swiss burgers would already be grumbling, so used were they to punctuality!
