REVIEW OF RECENT AMERICAN LIGHT RAIL EXPERIENCES

A review of new light rail systems opened in the United States since 1980 is presented using generally available transit system characteristics, U.S. Census data, and selected additional information. An update of experiences with the three cities studied in the last major federal assessment is contrasted with an overview of San Diego, which was not included, and five new light rail systems. Recent market trends for individual regions are presented, as are current local development policies.
