MSP tram coming soon!

Recent MSP news.
Long-delayed airport tram may open next month
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The long-delayed elevated tram may finally open next month at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
By early May, airport officials might start letting passengers ride the automated cars that will operate alongside Concourse C.
How will I get my exercise now!

I mention this because in most of the world (outside of North America) the Hiawatha Light Rail line would be referred to as a "Tram line"

And in Britain a "people mover" is what we call a mini Van.

Also I never knew it was called the Hiawatha Light Rail line
