Five Lessons Of Light Rail

Planners in Canada's Waterloo Region consider important lessons while debating LRT and the shape of future development.

"We're trying to prepare for a future that's 20 to 30 years down the line, and it's hard to really grasp what that would look like. But the region really has to be commended for getting a jump on this and having the courage to set out an ambitious agenda."
