Since 2014 a tram line has been added to the busy city of Edinburgh. It operates between the city centre and Edinburgh airport via Princes Street as well as through the popular shopping centre. This makes it easier for both commuters and tourists to travel around the city with no hassle, as well as cutting down on congestion.
