Modern light rail systems are already running in San Francisco and San Diego while projects already underway will put four new LRT systems in operation in California and Oregon by 1988. The rebuilding of the San Francisco Muni system and the building of the San Diego Trolley have given impetus to other such projects. Portland, OR, began construction of its 15-mile Banfield LRT project in 1982 with service to begin in 1986. This will be accompanied by new LRT projects in Santa Clara County (19 miles), Sacramento (18 miles) and Los Angeles County (22 miles). Elsewhere in California Orange County veters rejected a sales tax that would hve financed a 38-mile LRT system, but other funding alternatives are now being investigated. The charateristics of the various lines are compared and details are given.
