Is there a single map showing the rapid rail line (UrbanRail now has a page for it), the Translohr line, and the BRT line?

This is a very good thread, but has very low information –

I Live in Kolkata (old name was Calcutta), and my city is running electric tram since 1902, which is Asia’s oldest operating electric tram, & metro since 1984, which is India’s first metro.

Dalian (old name was Darien) also has similarities with Kolkata, it is running electric tram since 1909, and metro (someone wrongly says light rail) since 2005.

Both cities are running tram continuously, overcoming periodical threats of closure. At one place, Dalian is far ahead. Although its tram network is far less than Kolkata, but it maintains all routes, where Kolkata closed many routes.

Mainly for these reasons, I’m very much interested about Dalian’s tram & metro. So my request is –
1) Please include here a complete map of Dalian’s tramway network, with interchanges for subway.
2) Can anybody write which year those routes were opened? Write routes year by year.
3) Is there any route planned? If yes, please write details.

Waiting for reply eagerly.
