Hong Kong Tramways is a tram system in Hong Kong and one of the earliest forms of public transport in Hong Kong. Owned and operated by Veolia Transport, the tramway runs on Hong Kong Island between Shau Kei Wan and Kennedy Town, with a branch circulating Happy Valley. Trams in Hong Kong have not only been a form of transport for over 100 years, but also a major tourist attraction and one of the most environmentally friendly mass transit systems. It is the only exclusively double-decker operated tram system in the world, and one of only three non-heritage tram systems in the world that use double-deck cars.

 

香港電車是香港的一個路面電車系統,來往香港島區的筲箕灣及堅尼地城,另有環形支線來往跑馬地,每日平均可接載24萬人次的乘客,是全球現存唯一全數採用雙層電車的電車系統(另有英國黑池電車及埃及亞歷山卓電車部分路線使用雙層電車,非全數採用)。香港電車在1904年投入服務,是香港歷史最為悠久的交通工具之一。香港電車不僅是港島區居民的重要交通工具,也成為外地旅客觀光的著名景點。經歷百年來的變遷,香港電車現由法國威立雅運輸集團旗下的香港電車有限公司經營。
