AN important gap in the Munich tram network was finally filled on December 15 with the opening of the 1km western extension of Line 19 to the mainline station in Pasing.

Following the inauguration by the mayor of Munich Mr Christian Ude and the CEO of Munich Transport (MVG) Mr Herbert König, around 18,000 people took the opportunity for a free ride on the €12m extension, which operates as a loop from Landsbergstrasse serving an interchange with bus, S-Bahn, regional and long-distance train services at Pasing Station as well as a new station at Pasing Town Hall.
