Veículo Leve sobre Trilhos Carioca (VLT Carioca)
Tram line 1.


Built for Rio 2016 Olympic games, VLT Carioca is the newest tram network I have travelled. 44 meter long Alstom Citadis 402 trains are bright and spacious, without overhead lines. Power supply is from third rail.
As always, I tried to avoid filming co-passengers and waited suitable moments when most of the people were leaving the train.
