Like most cities, Liège made the mistake of phasing out its extensive tramway system in the second half of the twentieth century. Fortunately some of the old trams (aka streetcars) were saved and are now on display at the Museum of Public Transport.

Now, in the twenty-first century, planning is well underway to construct a completely new tram system in Liège, following the example of numerous French cities which have installed swift, modern tramway systems in recent decades. (See my Strasbourg, Lyon and Paris transportation tips for examples of these.)
