Absent since 1956, trams returned to the streets of Edinburgh in 2014. The 14-km (8.5-mile) stretch of track runs between Edinburgh Airport in the west to York Place in the east. Useful stops for travelers include Haymarket, Princes Street, and St. Andrew Square (for Waverley Station). Tickets are £1.50 for a single journey in the "City Zone" (which is every stop excluding the airport), or £5 to get to or from the airport. Day tickets, allowing unlimited travel, cost £4 in the City Zone and £9 including the airport.
