    The legacy of Brisbane’s Tram The now-defunct tram network is considered a lost part of Brisbane’s identity. 18 different tram routes were established throughout the network’s lifetime, connecting most corners of Brisbane and proving popular among residents. Between 1944–45 alone, almost 160 million passengers were carried across Brisbane. Everywhere from Stafford and Toowong to Coorparoo and Mt Gravatt were covered by the more than 199km of tram track. It’s been more than 50 years since the closure of the Tramway but even today, Brisbane is full of reminders of our trams. You can find old tracks poking through bitumen, tram stops along the roads, and rosettes still adorning buildings in the Brisbane CBD.
