来自萨里领导– Exposing 的空中列车 Urban Myth
接下来给萨里领袖的信无疑使《天空火车城市神话》粉碎了它，它比轻轨速度更快，容量更大。 空中列车大厅和主流媒体所忘记的是，这两种模式都是铁路（滚球是非常规铁路），并且遵循相同的运营原则。空中列车’BC Transit和TransLink的声誉已建立，但在低陆平原以外，滚球仍被运输计划者拒绝，只能以加拿大政府主要出资的私人交易出售！尽管市场上已有30多年的历史，但只有七个滚球型系统正在运行。
那里 is no evidence that the 空中列车 light metro or any light metro for that matter is fasterAi??Ai??or has a greater capacity than 轻轨 and is the prime reason why 轻轨列车 made light metro obsolete almost two decades ago.
Light rail capacity rivals 空中列车
文章A？ai ?? i ?? Ai ?? TransLinkA？ai ?? i ?? ai ??? s Prendergast提供了分隔建议A？ai ?? i ?? A？包含一个错误，这通常是由对现代轻轨系统了解甚少的人犯的，必须纠正。
的comment: A?ai??i??Ai??At-grade 轻轨列车 typically canA?ai??i??ai???t carry as many people or run as fast as grade-separated 空中列车,A?ai??i??A? is absolutely false.
空中列车, limited 通过 automatic (driverless) train control can only manage under 15,000 persons per hour and needs a billion dollars or more in upgrades just to match what modern 轻轨 can achieve today.
As for speed, 空中列车A?ai??i??ai???s higher commercial speeds can be, in part, accounted for fewer stations per route kilometre than comparable 轻轨 systems.
的maximum speed for 空中列车 is about 80 km/h, yet in Portland, their MAX 轻轨 line travels at 90 km/h on portions of their line.
MAXA?ai??i??ai???s commercial speed is lower than 空中列车 because it has about twice as many stations per route kilometre than 空中列车 and the 轻轨列车 travels as a streetcar through downtown Portland, with no track reservation or signal priority at intersections.
St. LouisA?ai??i??ai??? 轻轨 system in fact has a higher commercial speed than our 空中列车 light metro.
One would wish the media stop listening to the many 空中列车 urban myths and start dealing with established facts about modern 轻轨列车.
那里 is a good reason only seven 空中列车 type systems have been sold in the past 30 years.
