The Tram is based off of the single-ended variant of the "California Car" cable car, the kind which typically run on the Powell-Mason and Powell-Hyde lines of the [[wp:San_Francisco_cable_car_system|San Francisco cable car system]]. There are two different Trams that operate in San Fierro, a single car variant and a double car variant. There are never any brakemen seen controlling the Tram or any passengers seen riding it, and the player cannot board or drive it. Trams can commonly be seen with their destination displayed on the sides of the cars, toward the top.

Like GTA 1, the ability to ride the tram was cut from the game before release, most likely because that it was unnecessary and required extra programming and [[San Fierro]] was the smallest urban area. A notable aspect of the Tram, like all trains in the game, is that it is completely indestructible and cannot be stopped by obstructions. However, it can be targeted with [[Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher]]s, though they have no effect on it. Its rear is also able to catch on fire through the use of, for example, a [[Molotov Cocktail]].

In [[GTA Online]], the Tram can be entered through the doors when the Tram is stopped, allowing the player to walk inside while it is in motion.

Tram

A Tram in GTA V.
Vehicle type Train
Body style Streetcar
Capacity 0 (GTA San Andreas)
Infinite (GTA V and GTA Online)
Appearance(s) GTA San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto V

The Tram is a non-drivable street car in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas which appears on tracks around San Fierro and in Grand Theft Auto V around Los Santos. There is a Tram terminal in the King's district, but Trams are most usually seen in the Garcia district.

GTA 1Edit

In GTA 1, accessible trams were considered early during the game's development, but wasn't finalized, possibly explaining the absence of train services in San Andreas. The accessible trams were similar to the train systems in Liberty City and Vice City.

GTA San AndreasEdit

Tram-GTASA-front

A tram in GTA San Andreas.

The Tram is based off of the single-ended variant of the "California Car" cable car, the kind which typically run on the Powell-Mason and Powell-Hyde lines of the San Francisco cable car system. There are two different Trams that operate in San Fierro, a single car variant and a double car variant. There are never any brakemen seen controlling the Tram or any passengers seen riding it, and the player cannot board or drive it. Trams can commonly be seen with their destination displayed on the sides of the cars, toward the top.

Like GTA 1, the ability to ride the tram was cut from the game before release, most likely because that it was unnecessary and required extra programming and San Fierro was the smallest urban area. A notable aspect of the Tram, like all trains in the game, is that it is completely indestructible and cannot be stopped by obstructions. However, it can be targeted with Heat-Seeking Rocket Launchers, though they have no effect on it. Its rear is also able to catch on fire through the use of, for example, a Molotov Cocktail.

Although double tracked sections exist in the Tram's route that branch off from the single track, all Trams only use the inner tracks, and they can only be seen traveling anti-clockwise.

GTA VEdit

The Tram bears resemblance to the LA Metro Gold Line trams and is seen in the television show, The Underbelly Of Paradise passing through a Los Santos neighborhood behind FIB agent Steve Haines. The tram belongs to Los Santos Transit and services the majority of the Los Santos metropolitan area by stopping at ten stations and whilst skipping another due to construction. The player can ride the trams by walking through the open doors, the tram will begin to move and give the player a cinematic view. Unlike previous games, the rides can not be skipped; this could possibly be a bug as the Aerial Tramway (which functions similar to the tram) can be skipped. Overhead catenary lines near the Strawberry Station can also be seen in the first trailer.

GTA OnlineEdit

In GTA Online, the Tram can be entered through the doors when the Tram is stopped, allowing the player to walk inside while it is in motion. A glitch always occurs after the doors have opened which causes the doors to never close, this allows an infinite number of passengers to enter and also allows passengers to leave the tram at any time, even whilst it is moving. It is also possible to destroy the Tram with the use of explosives.
