QuoteTerminology.If you'll refer to the ACT Bus Gallery and Fleetwiki sites, you will notice that the terminology for the vehicles is consistent: we call them trams. CAF also call the Urbos 100 series as trams. As does Newcastle.
Light Rail or Tram?
What I do think is that this forum needs to decide whether to refer to the infrastructure as a Light Rail or Tram system; and the vehicles as Light Rail Vehicles or Trams.

Light Rail or Tram? Both terms are being used for the same thing and it is bugging me.
Unfortunately, many commentators are attempting to belittle the system here in Canberra by calling it a 'tram', so despite the convenience of the word tram, perhaps Light Rail and LRV are more appropriate for this Forum.

Should not have relied on memory, sorry. But still, they are normal shelters with nothing special about the infrastructure to warrant the term 'Bus Station'.
