Light Rail Transit (similar to RT's Light Rail)
Light Rail Transit. LRT is a system of modern rail cars or a single rail car operating on a rail track in exclusive rights-of-way, or in the street with mixed traffic. Light rail cars commonly powered by an overhead catenary and electric line, or by an on-board diesel or electric motor. Main features include rail vehicles, rail tracks, overhead electric lines, modern rail stations, signal priority at intersections, and integration with transit-oriented development strategies.
A mode of rapid transit where a transit vehicle rides along a railbed.

Light Rail Transit. An electrically propelled vehicle operated singly or in trains on predominantly reserved, but not necessarily grade-separated, rights-of-way. Compared to heavy (commuter) rail transit, LRT is characterized by smaller trains, shorter headways (time between trains on the same route), slower speeds, more frequent stops, and the possibility to operate in mixed traffic on surface streets.
Light Rail Transit â€“ A modern form of public transportation. LRT is a one, two or three car train that runs on tracks in city streets or on a separate right-of-way. The length of the train is never longer than a city block so that stopped vehicles do not block cross streets. LRT stations can be spaced as close as one-quarter mile in downtown areas but are typically spaced between one â€“half to one mile apart in most areas. Overhead electric wires power the trains, making the trains both clean and quiet. Light Rail vehicles are controlled by an on-board operator.
Light Rail Transit. A mode of transit that operates on steel rails and obtains its power from overhead electrical wires. LRT may operate in single or multiple cars on separate rights-of-way or in mixed traffic.
Late without Reasons Transit, a fully automated that requires no driver so that nobody would have to bear the responsibility for the frequent late arrivals. In non-operational mode most of the time.
