Discussion on Applicability and Train of Thought of Urban Small Capacity Rail Transit Development

Yuan Wang


In recent years, small and medium-sized cities have built rail transit to meet the growing travel needs of residents that gain popularity. Among them, small capacity rail transit has been widely used in many cities across the country due to its short construction period, low cost and strong adaptability. This article introduces the classification and characteristics of urban small capacity rail transit. Moreover, it discusses the applicability of small capacity rail transit development based on the current development of urban rail. This article claims that the direction of its development ideas in the future is more strengths, more smart, more standardized and coordination development with multiple types.
