The author describes the Advanced Light Guideway Transit (ALGT) and the Canadian Light Rail Vehicle which are to be incorporated into Toronto's public transport system. ALGT is a monorail, steel-wheeled system using a combination of linear induction motor and steerable axles. The Canadian light rail vehicle is a modern tramcar, 15 M long, with the possibility of multi-unit operation and capable of running on conventional street tracks or, at higher speeds, along its own right of way. A brief account is given of previous transportation experiments in the city and plans for extensions to the present system are described. /TRRL/
