One Response to “Skytrain has run its course; LRT is the way to go.”

  1. ngwright Says:

    There was a very good turnout last night, the room was almost filled and everyone seemed really engaged. Both speakers strayed more than a little off topic and probably agreed with each other way too much, but I really enjoyed it. I tend to side with Harcourt on limited used of skytrain, in combination with light rail. On the other hand, Condon was very articulate in his vision for a slower city built around corridors instead of nodes. I would highly recommend next months dialogue on STV.
