The Light Rail Transit Association’s magazine is widely regarded as the definitive light rail journal and is essential reading for all concerned with urban transport and planning. T & UT is published on the third Friday of every month and is full of news, features and articles about light rail and urban transit systems around the world.
Read how cities are transforming themselves with modern modes of urban transit — making them better places to live, work, shop and play — enabling civilised life without the dominance of the motor car.
The LRTA also publishes an historical magazine Tramway Review, further information here.
The December T&UT issue (No 924) and the December issue of Tramway Review (240) have been dispatched.
The members area is now active and can be accessed in the same way as for the on-line magazine. Currently it holds the AGM papers and a new document which gives advice on campaigning and also a form with details of new books available in the shop and also a new address if ordering by post. 2014 Membership cards for on-line only members are available to be printed in the members area!
The December T&UT plus December TR are now available on-line for members and can be accessed by logging into your account (or creating an account) on the LRTA shop at www.lrta.info/shop.. If when logged in you do not see the link to the on-line magazine then e-mail OLM@lrta.org with you membership number and details.
New in the Members Area: AGM papers and Reports submitted to the 2014 Association Officers Conference.
Personal members, except those who pay by Direct Debit, will have received a yellow insert (with the November issue) with details of other societies and overseas agents along with a renewal form on the reverse of the address carrier for the November and December magazine.
Direct debit: Members who pay by Direct Debit have been sent a letter outlining the 2015 rates. There is no need to reply unless you wish to change any options otherwise renewal will be automatic.
LRTA renewals, at home and abroad, can be made on-line through our shop.
