Anil had to lobby hard for public to engage the authority to deploy Tram system. As far as most readers aware, Team is not in the master plan of Penang Transport of the future.

Many many prewar shophouses in heritage zone of Penang Island have been snapped up to be converted into lodges or boutique motels to cater for tourist influx. This can justify tram system to be viable with paying tourists and locals benefiting from that?
Again, some may like the tram system but dislike metropolis lifestyle for fear of higher living cost as tourists spend like nobody business with depreciating ringgit versus their currencies.
