Depots and Terminals
During the heyday of the Rio de Janeiro tram system, there were a number depots and terminals.
Depots at Cascadura, Penha, Méier, Alto da Boa Vista, Usina, Triagem, 28 de Setembro, Vila Isabel, São Cristóvão, Bonjardim, Rua Larga, Santo Antonio (neighbourhood), Largo do Machado, Largo dos Leoes, and Cosme Velho are all now closed, and the only depot still operating is Santa Teresa itself.
Most termini are also now closed, including Freguesia (Jacarepaguá), Taquara, Madureira, Irajá, Cavalcante, Inahauma, Caxambi, Piedade, Quintino Bocaiúva, Caju, Andarai, Santa Alexandrina, Estrela, Praia Vermelha, Leme, Gávea and Silvestre. There are currently three termini still served, at Largo da Carioca, Dois Irmãos and Paula Matos, and of these Largo da Carioca is the only one with a terminal (building).
One historic mule tram depot, at Vila Guaraní, is preserved.
