Departmental Papers (ESE)

Abstract

The increasing importance of regional rail systems for growing cities and metropolitan areas has been shown more clearly in North America than anywhere else in the world. In spite of extremely auto-oriented developments and policies which do not favor railways, a number of North American cities have extended and improved their regional rail systems in recent decades.
