Cities in all columns--yellow and blue,
are cities in the United States and Canada who involved with planned, proposed,
or in process of development of new rail transit systems. Some have had rail
systems for decades and are extending them under Obama's stimulas money incentives.
Those in the yellow columns are researched by The Steel Rails Advocate, contain
several sources of information and will tend to be the most updated. Other
useful information is included in these reports. The blue list will eventually
be moved over to the yellow section.
NEW TRENDS IN AMERICA
in America is making a strong resurgence. This has led to a revival of interest
not only in the preservation of historic districts and urban neighbor-hoods,
but also in a classic technology, the urban streetcar that can serve as
a major catalyst for urban revival. As traditional neighbor-hoods in older
cities become the location of choice for more American singles, young couples,
families, and empty-nesters alike—there is an emerging a need to provide
good and attractive transit service to these areas. The APTA Streetcar and
Heritage Trolley Subcommittee (of the APTA Rail Committee) was formed to
promote the development of vintage/heritage trolley lines and modern streetcar
lines in urban centers, to foster information ex-change among those planning
or those operating such lines, and to encourage reasonable technical and
strong safety standards.
