TORONTO ADDS TWO NEW PEOPLE MOVERS

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/
