CBD with rail transit

Recommended Posts

I am working for a asian consultant corporation. We have a project that is a CBD planning project. I want to get information about the relationship between CBD and Rail transit(subway or Light rail).

Merry Christmas!

Sydney CBD has an integrated system including subway and above ground train stations, light rail and a monorail .

Since a council boundary change on Feb 6 '04 downtown Sydney has;

*13 rail stations (10 subway stations) including the 7 traditional CBD stations

* 12 lightrail stations/stops (Central Station to Jubilee Park return)

* 8 monorail stations

More information @ Light rail & Monorail system

Apart from Sydney's full metro transport network, the link below also includes Melbourne's train & tram (light rail) network which is the most extensive tram network in the world.

Adelaide also has a tram line out its CBD. Brisbane & Perth don't have trams but do have subway stations in their CBDs, as does Melbourne & Sydney.

There are keys (legends) explaining the systems accompanying the transport maps.

Just go to the left-hand side menu and click onto "Metro networks" @ Australian Transport Systems

^ ^ Also so many pics, lots of information and seperate website links of interest. It's worth exploring. :thumbsup:
