ⓘ Trams in Tashkent

The Tashkent tramway network formed part of the public transport system in Tashkent, the capital city of Uzbekistan. The network opened with horsecars in 1901. Since 1912 the system was converted to electric tramway. As of its closing in 2016, the network consisted of six lines of 87.8 kilometres of route, a decline from the tram systems maximum of 24 lines.

Tashkent Mayor Rakhmonbek Usmonov announced on March 29, 2016, that the network would close by years end in order to make way for more cars and thus aid in reducing congestions within the capital. City-owned operating company Tashgorpastrans also plans to sell the 30 KTM-19 and 20 Vario LF trams, which it acquired in 2007 and 2011, respectively. The system was closed on May 2, 2016.
