The city of St Petersburg, Russia once boasted the largest tramway network in the world, consisting of about 340 kilometres of unduplicated track in the late 1980s. Since 1995, the tramway network has seen a sharp decline in size due to the removal of major portions of track, particularly in the city centre; so St Petersburg lost its record to Melbourne, Australia. While it still had 285 km in 2001, the track extent in early 2007 was just over 220 km. It is operated by Gorelektrotrans (Russian: Горэлектротранс) as its shown in St Petersburg tramway map, a municipal organization that runs trams daily on 38 routes and also owns the trolleybus network.
There are currently 38 operating tramway routes in St Petersburg, 34 of which operate on a daily basis, while others operate on business days only as its mentioned in St Petersburg tramway map. About one third of the track extent is operated on regular basis, having frequencies of 10 minutes and lower. Other St Petersburg tramway sections are operated with frequencies up to 30 minutes, and retaining central lines are almost abandoned, artificially having no passenger-carrying value at all.
All of the tramway vehicles currently in use on the network in St Petersburg were built locally by the PTMF. The KTM-5M3 series, which was produced in the town of Ust-Katav in Chelyabinsk Oblast, Russia, used in St Petersburg until September 18, 2007. Between in 1907 and late 1960s, the St Petersburg tramway network used to operate British-built Brush tram engines (see St Petersburg tramway map).
