Light transit systems are becoming increasingly popular and are likely to be a major factor in reducing traffic congestion and pollution in cities. Already 40 cities in Britain alone are considering, planning or currently running light rail transit systems. This book tackles the practicalities by considering the questions - do you need it?, can you afford it?, can you sell the idea?, how do you go about it? and how do you run it?.
