This paper compares the characteristics and costs of the main types of urban transit systems, including buses, trains, light rail, rapid rail and suburban rail systems.
As well as covering the examination of existing transport systems, the paper suggests. A rapid transit system is a railway—usually in an urban area—with high passenger capacities and frequency of service, and (usually) full grade separation from other traffic (including other rail traffic).
It is often known as "heavy rail" to distinguish it from light rail and bus rapid transit. In most parts of the world these systems are known as a "metro" which is short for "metropolitan". The book offers a novel conceptual approach for addressing the problems of production, logistics and traffic in an urban context.
As most of the world's population now live in cities, thus significantly increasing commercial traffic, there are numerous challenges for efficiently and sustainably delivering goods into cities.
