12th National Light Rail Conference
11/11/2012 – 11/13/2012
Salt Lake City, UT, USA
Sustaining the Metropolis: LRT & Streetcars for Super Cities
This conference will show decision-makers in mid-sized metropolitan regions how investments in light rail and streetcars have addressed and can continue to address the greatest deficiency of transit in modern America: The failure to connect Americans to jobs, which now overwhelmingly are in the suburbs. Conference sessions will show the positive results being experienced in metropolitan areas that have embraced light rail and streetcar; and similarly, show how other metropolitan areas that have rejected these modes of transportation have fared.
This conference will explore new ways to plan, design, construct, maintain and operate light rail and streetcar systems. The host for this conference will be the Utah Transit Authority, a showcase of innovation in public transportation. They will be proud to share with you how their integrated rail transit system is connecting cities and suburbs with their communities and providing visitors car-free access to a wide variety of places to see and things to do.
