Across the continent there are new and ongoing investments in light and commuter rail lines, including the resurrection of streetcars. The Transport Politic carries a map of all these new construction projects, along with details on individual projects and the expected completion.
It’s good to see the broad number of projects underway, many as extensions to prior projects whose ridership has spurred further investments. I’ll need to wait until 2015 for the East Corridor here in Denver to dramatically improve my own transit connections. I dream of the short walk to my local station that will connect me to the airport, downtown, and beyond.
