DESCRIPTION
Bilbao bases its public tranport network on local railways, metro and tram lines.
Tram (Line A) opened in 2002, after the closure of a former system occurred during years '50s. Tram runs on a single rail track from Atxuri to Pio Baroja, and on a double track platform from Pio Baroja to Basurto. Line A has a crucial role in the integration of the different transport systems; San Mames stop it's the main hub (tram/metro/local trains/buses interchange), followed by Abando stop (LRT, RENFE and FEVE trains, buses) and Atxuri stop (Euskotren terminal, a local railway service which links Bilbao, Bermeo and San Sebastian). Line A serves Basurto Hospital, Hacienda Foral (Regional Treasury), Industrial Engineeing Faculty and San Mames Stadium.
