A year later the MTT operated its first electric tram and before long the entire network was powered by electricity.

Until the s, trams were used for family outings to the extent that the MTT constructed gardens in the suburb of Kensington Gardens , extending the Kensington line to attract customers. After the Great Depression , the maintenance of the tramway system and the purchase of new trams suffered.
