A tram stop, tram station, streetcar stop, or light rail station is a place designated for a tram, streetcar, or light rail vehicle to stop so passengers can board or alight it. Tram stops share most characteristics of bus stops, but because trams operate on rails, they include railway platforms if stepless entries are provided for accessibility. However, trams may be used with bus stop type flags and with mid-street pavements as platforms, in street running mode. Most tram or streetcar stops in Melbourne and Toronto and other systems with extensive sections of street-running have no associated platforms, with stops in the middle of the roadway pavement. In most jurisdictions, traffic cannot pass a tram or streetcar whose doors are open, unless the tram is behind a safety zone or has a designated platform. On the other hand, several light rail systems have high-platform stops or stations with dedicated platforms at railway platform height. Reasons for this include systems being created from former heavy rail routes, or to provide a more rapid transit-like commuting experience.
Such trams stop at dedicated platform stops on Stadtbahn systems in Germany in underground stations in city centres. Not all tram stops are served full-time. In the 1920s, Toronto created Sunday stops in addition to regular stops along its streetcar routes. Sunday stops were only used on a Sunday and, with few exceptions, were always near a Christian church. There were a few Sunday stops near subway stations that were usable only before 9 am, the Sunday opening time of the subway system. However, the Toronto Transit Commission decided to close all Sunday stops on June 7, 2015; the TTC found. Sunday stops were unfair to non-Christian places of worship which never had the equivalent of a Sunday stop. By 2015, most Sunday stops were along former streetcar routes; the design of tram stops have seen many recent innovations. Bus stop Street running Train/railway station
