Nice Tramway – is now open and running – Lessons for the Broadway LRT Gang!

August 10, 2010

The following link shows the newly opened Nice LRT/tram system and shows how well modern LRT fits into urban centres. The nature of Broadway is going to change with both metro and LRT, the questions that merchants and residents must ask, which mode will enhance livability?

There is much debate about that question, but until TransLink gets the twinkle of metro away from its eyes, any talk of LRT will be both dated and negative.
