  • Lrt systems around the world





    http://www.greenprophet.com/2012/12/casablanca-tramway/


    It takes 60 minutes to travel from one end of Casablanca’s new tramway to the other and costs less than a dollar per trip, regardless of distance traveled.

    With 48 stations linking all of the city’s major neighborhoods, as well as ONCF stations, business districts, hospitals, and the downtown area, the new tramway is expected to breathe new life into the city.

    With service running between 6.30am and 10pm during the week and until 11.30pm on weekends, the tramway will also generate new jobs – both for those working directly for the transportation ministry and for residents who previously lacked access to far flung places.

    Just one part of a broader government plan to attract investors and turn the city into a thriving, internationally-recognized metropolis, the second tramway system in Morocco, and the largest – given the long route and number of stations, is only the first of four planned for Casablanca.

    This combined with an express road network and other planned infrastructural upgrades that are in the works will cost the Moroccan government a total of 45 billion dirhams or USD5.34 billion.

                      The idea of this thread is for edp to post all his tram findings instead of a thread for each city.
                      A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims, but accomplices.

                        With that being said maybe we could merge all of them into here?

                            Honolulu is a tram? I posted an elevated system... and I just post as I find them zia my Zite.

                            I can't help if the majority of new systems being built or talked about are of the European tram variety.

                            O and I think it's good to leave the Canadian systems on their own threads... just my opinion.

                              Dallas orange line opened July 2012

                              The other Dart LRT line is one of the USA's most successful LRT systems.
