The Compagnie des tramways de Monaco (TM), was created in 1897 by Henri Crovetto,[1] a Monegasque entrepreneur, in order to construct an electric tramway in Monaco.


The company received permission for several lines:

  • Place d'Armes - Saint Roman, opened on 14 May 1898
  • Gare de Monaco - Place du Gouvernement, opened on 11 March 1899
  • Casino - Gare de Monte-Carlo, opened on 3 May 1900

In 1900, the network is connected by the Tramway de Nice et du Littoral (TNL) company In 1903, the section from the Casino - Gare de Monte-Carlo is withdrawn In 1909, the company is absorbed by the TNL

On 26 January 1931, the tramways disappeared from Monaco.[citation needed]
