18th August 2022 – (Hong Kong) The 6th Generation Peak Tram is set to make its long-awaited public debut with its launch on 27th August 2022, marking a new chapter in the history of one of Hong Kong’s most beloved icons. The launch of the new generation Peak Tram and terminus ushers in a fully redesigned and vastly improved passenger experience, along with newly renovated termini with upgraded facilities, and a greater capacity for serving visitors from around the world.
A new recreational experience with enhanced passenger services
To provide a more enjoyable, efficient and comfortable experience, Peak Tramways has completed a significant upgrade project at a cost of HK$799 million. The project included brand new tramcars, the replacement of all haulage, control and signalling systems, new ropes and track rails, and the refurbishment of its Central and Peak Termini to facilitate the beautiful new, larger capacity tramcars. The Central Terminus has been extended to provide covered, temperature-controlled arrival and waiting areas for up to 1,300 people. Platforms and tramcar floor levels have been aligned to provide enhanced step-free access for people with disabilities.
In addition to reducing passenger waiting times by over 70%, visitors will be greeted by a dynamic, engaging and brand-new entertainment experience. The new experience introduces 5 engaging zones that include: Eye of Infinity, The Beating Heart, An Icon is Born, Once Upon a Tram, and Go Wild at the Peak at the Central Terminus. A new and informative Audio-Visual display at the Peak Terminus has also been created. The comprehensive redevelopment has been meticulously engineered to offer local and non-local visitors a spectacular passenger experience.
