What is Tram Bowling? Watch for Yourself


The life of a public transit driver is more glamorous than you might think—at least in Europe, where drivers from systems all over the continent come together each year to duke it out for the title of “tram driver of the year.” To win the coveted honor, they compete in quirky tasks that show off their prowess handling a streetcar, such as tram bowling, shown in this video spotted by Gizmodo.

A tram team from Budapest won the fifth annual tournament last month, and will defend their title next year in the Canary Islands.
