The Zurich tram network serves most of the city neighbourhoods, and is the backbone of public transport within the city, supplemented by the inner sections of the S-Bahn, along with urban electric trolleybus and bus routes, two funicular railways and one rack railway. The trams operate within a regime provided by the cantonal public transport authority Zürcher Verkehrsverbund (ZVV). The ZVV also covers regional rail and bus services. All trams within the city are operated by the Verkehrsbetriebe Zürich (VBZ), which operates the city's urban network. The city's tram tracks are also used by the Glattalbahn tram services to the Glattal area to the north of the city, Trains of the Forchbahn (FB) light railway also uses the city's tram lines to reach their city terminus, I did not have time to photograph this line
