Subways and Tramways
The subway is best the medium- to high-capacity transport system for large urban areas. Designing a subway line requires a multidisciplinary team and meaningful planning about functionality and quality service. In addition, safety, reliability and emergency requirements must be considered within the framework of a system designed to carry large numbers of passengers in often congested trains. In the case of tramways or light rail systems, a careful process of integration and coordination with other urban transport modes is also needed. A good tramway project requires the acceptance of the majority of the population it is attempting to transport.
