Atlantafag here. I actually rode that thing the other day. It's basically an express line to one of the worst parts of the city imaginable (The Sweet Auburn Historic District is only as good as the internet pictures will lead you to believe).

I shit you not, there was a tramp at every stop. If a tramp wasn't there, his shitty little pushcart was (I saw one just filled with dolls, it was sitting on the platform with no one around it). I was the only one on the tram, besides a family and their kids out on an Atlanta day trip, so I was absolutely mortified at the thought of one actually getting on. And the simple fact is this...it goes nowhere.

Of course, the city plans to expand the line to much more of the Atlanta area, so that might possibly make it an actually viable transit option- but we all know how quick and efficiently these concepts are carried out in Atlanta...

>I shit you not, there was a tramp at every stop.
man, that's true everywhere
>>
>>1117515
But tell me there's other people with the tramps at these stops- like, people who are actually about to board and ride a streetcar.

Waterloo ION opens next year using Flexity Freedom LRV's. They will also be used on the Eglinton Crosstown and Finch West lines in Toronto when they open in 2021 and 2023 respectively.

It was supposed to open this year.

But, lazy Bombardier cunts had to delay train delivery by 6 months (and possibly even more, pushing the opening to mid-to-late 2018).

Apparently they just missed the delivery target of the Flexity Outlook LRV's for the TTC again this year, so don't get your hopes up for them to deliver. Speaking of Flexity Freedom, is the prototype actually working now?

>>1117562

If it isn't for its small capacity it might as well be a subway

Am I the only one in this city who likes the new trains? Everyone complains that they're uncomfy but come December they'll know why they're good. It's the heated floors. I rode them a few times when it was -20 last winter and they were the only train that actually stayed warm even with opening every two minutes.

I don' think we can call this as "light" rail

Well LRT could have different meanings depending where you live
Such as in Singapore which is actually a People Mover... or a medium capacity rapid transit like in KL and the one under construction in Jakarta

Well here in Toronto Metrolinx did purchase 60 Citadis LRV's for the Crosstown as a backup should Bombarider fail to deliver. Metrolinx did want to cancel the Bomarbardier contract but they were taken to court over it. As it stands now the Eglinton Crosstown and Finch West LRT lines will use both Flexity and Citadis trains. Bombardier has the maintenance contract for the lines vehicles as well.

and you have Melbourne's trams.

As a passenger, I think it makes the tram trip more exciting:
>what tram class will turn up today?
although I'm sure it's much more of a headache for maintenance and training.

I never dig the look. I prefer a more conventional looking train like the back bombardier art200/300 as well as the CSR's Amy train used in existing line

I read Philadephia is doing an troughout archtecture overhaul on SEPTA trolleys. Bying new articulated cars too, - eventually.

I so hope they'd use the old trolleys to revive the lines that still have their trackage intacts. These could be maintained in the old facilities, in the meantime. Minimal functionality with what they have. Sigh.

Singapore LRT is outright a misnomer. It's Light Rapid Transit.
Light metro never LRT. Light rail rapid transit must contain LRT sections to be called LRT. If it isn't dedicated tracks at-grade it's still not LRT.

there's nothing "light" about the DLR. DLR is a misnomer imo

I'm not sure if this is just me, but I've always thought the noises that come from the Amy trains always make them feel really heavy. I also find it odd the fact that the doors opening and shutting makes the whole train jitter.

Neat (but slow af) way to get to Bilbao's centre from the bus station and up until a year ago the only thing in Bilbao that offered interoperability with other cards in the Basque Country.

It's not lighter than regular rail?

so wouldn't that be a medium capacity rail system?

is the entire thing grade separated? I go to U Ottawa, and I know the stations in the downtown are tunneled, but is the surface portion grade seperated from traffic?

>>1118329
The system at >>1118228 is being described as a medium-capacity system
