As cities grow and public expectations for low-carbon transport options increase, light rail and other forms of mass transit are experiencing a resurgence.
Around the world, governments are using light rail and mass transit to improve connectivity and reshape cities. Done well, mass transit systems can reinvigorate neighbourhoods, generating economic uplift and creating a distinct identity for the communities they inhabit. But most importantly, mass transit systems unlock opportunities – giving people greater choice in how they live, work and travel.
Aurecon has worked with city authorities to deliver light rail, metro and rapid transit projects around the world, from initial scheme and business case development through to design, construction, and ongoing asset management. We understand the economics of successful rail and mass transit projects, ensuring the right mode is selected for the context, and community benefits are shared equitably.
