Light Rail for better public transport

Busy summer on US west coast

This summer will see the inauguration of three tramway/light rail operations. In Los Angeles, California, the light rail Gold Line linking Union Station in the city centre with Pasadena in the north-east suburbs will be inaugurated on 25 July, with regular service from 26 July. Meanwhile in the port of San Pedro south of Los Angeles the waterfront heritage tramway, which recreates some of the atmosphere of the former Pacific Electric interurban operation, should open for passenger operation on 19 July. In Washington State, the short tramway shuttle line in Tacoma, south of Seattle, is due to be opened on 22 August.
