Global Mass Transit Research has released the Global Light Rail Projects Report & Database 2020-2035 in July 2020, which tracks 280 new and upcoming light rail projects in 56 countries across the world.

These 280 projects involve the development of light rail systems spanning over 3,500 km and covering over 2,700 stations at an estimated investment of more than USD178 billion and present significant opportunities for contractors, developers, financiers, rolling stock providers, fare system technology providers and signalling system providers.

The report includes 2 distinct sections.

Part 1 includes a PPT (converted to PDF document) that provides an analysis of the opportunities in terms of geographic regions (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa), development stage (planned, in procurement, or under construction), type of project (new line of an existing system, extension of existing line, or new system), alignment (elevated, underground, at-grade), expected completion (by 2025, 2026–2030, beyond 2030), cost (less than USD500 million, between USD500 million and USD1 billion, between USD1 billion and USD2 billion, over USD2 billion), type of developer (PPPs, government funding), and market opportunities (consulting, construction, supply of rolling stock, railway systems, fare systems, signalling).

It also provides key high investment projects, recent developments, risks and challenges, and impact of COVID-19.

Part 2 includes an MS Excel database organised into five regions: North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East and Africa. It provides detailed and up-to-date information on each project, with separate Excel workbooks for each of the five geographic regions.

Each project profile in the MS Excel database provides information on
– Developer/operator – Key contractors and consultants
– Transport mode (light rail/streetcar/tram/tram-train) – Connections with other public transport modes
– Project type – Expected ridership
– Network length – No. of stations
– Alignment (underground/elevated/at-grade) – Elevated and underground stations
– Route – Station locations
– Planned service frequency – Planned fare system (type and integration)
– Expected opening – Planned rolling stock
– Capital cost – Track and power
– Sources of funds – Planned signalling technology
– Current stage of the project (under planning, under
construction, under procurement)
– Additional information
– Details of the current stage of the project – Key contact person for the project
