Integration of light Rail Transit Into City Street
Integration of light Rail Transit Into City Street
Report Number: R-017
This report documents and presents the results of a study to improve the safety of light rail transit (LRT) operations in shared rights-of- way where LRT operates on, adjacent to, or across city streets at low to moderate speeds (35 mph or less). Safety problems and potential solutions were identified through a literature review, field observations, videotapes, and structured interviews with ten LRT properties in the U.S. and Canada. From the system surveys, an alignment classification scheme was developed, and an inventory of traffic control devices was compiled. Accident data were analyzed to examine where, how, and why conflicts between light rail vehicles, motor vehicles, and pedestrians arise.
