Edmonton has built itself a nice system. I hope they don't ruin it by running low floors with stops that are too frequent like Toronto's TransitCity where they have taken "rapid" out of "rapid" transit.

How exactly are they going to work the NAIT line? Will everyother train from Century Park head to NAIT while the other heads to Clairview or is this just a total new line that only runs the 3 km and back again?

You're saying that systems with 500 metre stop spacings is not "rapid transit"? That means Paris, Philadelphia, Glasgow, Berlin are all not rapid transit.

Well, and they are really slow indeed! 500m is really too close. Perfect would be 800-1000m

The NAIT extension will be currently operated like a "Branch". Until construction starts sometime in the near future on the rest of the line. (given date unknown.)

That maybe true but a lot of people do use the system Daily as we have some 7 day a week work hours. But, as u said, you are completly right, it is probably a daily weekday ridership. The only day that might see some lower ridership is Sunday.

Yet, Paris and Berlin have extremely high ridership. You can't just say '800 metres is perfect'. It's not cut and paste as you and ssiguy2 want to believe.

Just merged all Edmonton threads into one. Good to keep all information in one place.

Neither is having 3.3 km gap between stations a good thing. A similar length system in a denser city would have more stations than we do. Montreal's green line has 27 stations, and is only slightly longer than Edmonton LRT. Here in Western Canada, population density is too sparse, which determines our stations would be far apart.

That's the problem, the sparse density in Canada or States makes it almost impossible to create a good public transportation system. It would be wise to built up along the metro/lrt routes - no houses but condominums. That way more ppl could easily use the trains/buses. The cities in North America are just too huge (in terms of space, not population).

At Health Station, there is a spur or something so that the train can stop and reverse course. The two lines will be interlined.

The spur is south of the South Campus Station, not Health Science Station. But if that spur is going to be used for reversing revenue service trains, there is a need for a new platform since the driver needs to exit the train to walk to the opposite end, and right now there is no such a flatform at South Campus Spur. Over the summer 2012, a whole complicated mesh of new tracks were laid just north of the Churchill Station, I wonder if it can be possible for the train to just run between Churchill and NAIT.
