On the streets of Long Beach, California

Metro Blue Line light rail at 1st Street, Long Beach, CA

Americans don’t use the word “tram”. I find this horribly disconcerting.

  1. I find living in a city with trams horribly disconcerting. (Still!)

  2. pfft, you shouldn’t! Melburnian trams are way more awesome than those in LA or SF.

  3. What do they call them then?

  4. “Light rail” or “streetcars”. Or worse, just “trains” — when I’m in San Francisco and hear someone say they’re going to Embarcadero Muni station to catch the “N train”, I feel like slapping them.
