MEDIUM CAPACITY TRANSIT SYSTEM ALTERNATIVES FOR THE LOS ANGELES REGION
A study of medium capacity transit system alternatives was carried out for the Southern California Rapid Transit District (SCRTD). The study provided SCRTD with information needed to complement earlier studies which dealt with conventional rail and bus alternatives. It was concluded that, on balance, a light rail vehicle system constituted a viable option for rapid transit service on some corridors in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. For a variety of reasons, an automated small vehicle group rapid transit (GRT) system does not appear to be well-suited for immediate adoption.
