New Trams for Botanic Gardens in Penang

If all goes well, the Penang Botanic Gardens will soon have a new attraction - an environment-friendly mini-tram to take people for a ride around the green enclave.

For a month-long trail-run, four mini trams would run at the oldest botanical garden in the country from Wednesday.

The trams can ferry a total of 100 passengers if all are running at the same time. This will be the first tram ride in the Botanic Gardens since the garden was opened in 1884. The 1,300cc engine runs on unleaded petrol, the head of the tram is imported from Japan while the coach is made locally.

The rides will be available from 8am until 9pm daily. Tickets are priced at RM1 for adults and 50 sen for children.

The 1.5km trip will take between 15-20 minutes.
