    The news article states the following, "The tram will ride from Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m".

    Is this a typo or is the tram only going to be operationally for three hours per day?

    Nope, not a typo. I just left Aruba yesterday. I was told that they will be starting with just a few hours a day. The fare is $1.00. They only have one trolley right now, with several more on order.

    Just got home from Aruba.

    Don't be disappointed if it's not running when you get there.

    Aruba test-runs unique tram service
    24th February 2013

    On Tuesday last week, the tiny Caribbean island of Aruba's new solar-powered tram took to the streets for the first time

    Aruba is officially the first island in the Caribbean to launch a public tram service. This eco-friendly form of transport will cost $1 to ride, and will run on rechargeable batteries.

    Aruba's authorities hope that the ease with which the tram can be run will encourage visitors to venture to downtown Oranjestad, the capital of Aruba. The tram route is part of an on-going project of rejuvenation which will see a new Linear Park; a 10-mile landscaped walkway from Aruba's airport, heading north.

    The two-carriage trams will run on a 12-minute circular route. This will connect the capital Oranjestad, with the city's cruise terminal, and the Commercial Plaza shopping mall. It will also take a scenic route, passing the city's historic fort and its archaeological museum.

    The tram will operate six days a week, Monday through Saturday, from 10:00am until 1:00pm.

    New green transport such as this should aid the island in its attempt to become completely carbon-neutral by 2020. Aruba is working with the organisation Carbon War Room to achieve this.
