The recent decades have witnessed significant investment in urban rail systems. This trend is expected to continue at least up to 2050. Urban population continues to grow and rail-based public transport systems are offering a sustainable solution for meeting the increasing mobility demand.
Urban rail systems can combine flexibly with other modes of travel to reduce congestion, lower pollution levels, improve passenger safety and stimulate the economy. The extension of existing urban rail systems and development of new systems benefit communities and provide many attractive opportunities for the government and the industry.
Global Mass Transit Research has launched a database with up-to-date information on 500 urban rail projects from across the world. The report will comprise a PDF document and a Microsoft Excel database.
The database will be updated regularly. A quarterly report on new developments in the projects will be sent at the end of every quarter. In future, the database will be available online.
There will be two distinct sections.
Part 1 will comprise a PDF document of about 90 pages. It will include an analysis of the projects based on geographic region (North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa), development stage (planned, in procurement, or under construction), mode (light-rail, tram, monorail, automated people mover [APM], metrorail, subway, rapid transit, airport rail link (ARL), commuter rail), and type of project (new line of an existing system, extension of existing line, or new system).
Part 2 will include the Microsoft Excel file. It will provide detailed and up-to-date information on each project, including developer/operator, expected opening, capital cost, sources of funds, key contractors, line length, route, stations, connections with other public transport modes, expected ridership and service frequency, fare system, rolling stock, track, power, signalling technology, and contact person/organisation for the project. There will be separate Excel workbooks for each of the five geographic regions.
The database will be useful to organisations interested in urban railways-government agencies, transport authorities, operators, service and technology providers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, EPC contractors, investors/lenders, research organisations, industry consultants, regulatory agencies, development institutions, etc.
The database is priced at USD 4,500. It is scheduled to be released on June 15, 2017.
As a special offer for Public Transport Authorities/Agencies, the database is priced at USD 4,000.
