EDMONTON'S NORTHEAST LIGHT RAPID TRANSIT PROJECT: LRT IMPLEMENTATION PROGRESS IN THE CITY OF EDMONTON

This paper discusses whether the intermediate-capacity transit line is economically viable and acceptable in the community-social sense. In terms of capacity, the studies underline a problem inherent in coping with large peak passenger-handling capacities by conventional full-scale bus services (in the order of "a bus per minute" flows)--that of high operating cost very susceptible to inflation.
