Abstract:

The TRB Committee on Light Rail Transit decided that there was need for another LRT conference and that it should be structured around the theme of cost-effectiveness. This volume contains many papers that were solicited by the TRB Committee on Light Rail Transit to address specific topics from a particular perspective. Other papers were received in response to a general call for papers on the fairly narrow conference theme. The result is a well-structured coverage of the cost-effectiveness aspects of LRT design, including systems, construction, operation, and vehicles.
