Our history

The city of The Hague made history in 1864 with the first horse-drawn tram in the Netherlands. More than 100 years later HTM trams are still inseparably part of the city centre and it is impossible to imagine the cityscape without them.

Our tram network has been expanded considerably since the 1970s, which means that we are connecting more and more passengers with each other, their homes and their places of work.Thanks to its great international attractiveness, The Hague is increasingly developing into a metropolis, and this growth is happening hand-in-hand with the growth of our network.

We want to actively respond to this growth by providing good public transport that runs frequently, provides more space and is accessible to all passengers. By using new technology, innovative thinking and good collaboration we can better satisfy the needs of our passengers and life in the metropolis, both now and in the future!
