The Alexandria tramway network consists of 20 lines operating on 32 km (20 miles) of route, serving 140 stops. It began operating in 1863 and was electrified in 1902.

It is one of only 3 non-heritage tram systems in the world that use double-deck cars; the others are Blackpool in the UK and Hong Kong. The system is standard gauge.
