Trams Are Green – Subways Are Not!

From the response from the previous post with about lawned rights-of-ways for trams, I offer more glimpses of what modern LRT should look like in Metro Vancouver and in any city considering modern light rail.

Think of tram routes as linear parks.

Think of Vancouver with many linear parks, providing fast and efficient public transport.

Think of a linear park reaching as far as UBC; Stanley Park; or even SFU.

This is real “Green” transit, supported by the “Green” movement internationally.

Modern light rail, would bring “Green” transit to Metro Vancouver.

Note: the centre is used for the APS method of power collection (no overhead wires).
