Global Mass Transit Research has just released the first edition of its 1,000 Rail Projects Report, which tracks 1,000 projects in 99 countries. The report comprises a PDF document and a Microsoft Excel database.
The database will be updated regularly. A quarterly report on new developments in the projects will be sent to the report buyers at the end of every quarter.
The PDF report provides an introduction to the database and an analysis of the projects included in the database, in terms of geographic region, development stage (planned, in procurement, or under construction), mode (light rail, tram, monorail, automated people mover [APM], metrorail, subway, rapid transit, airport rail link [ARL], commuter rail, passenger rail), and type of project (new line of an existing system, extension of existing line, or new system).
The projects have been classified as either in planning/proposed, under procurement or under construction. The countries are organised into five regions: North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and Middle East and Africa.
The Excel database provides detailed and up-to-date information on each project, including developer/operator, expected opening, capital cost, sources of funds, key contractors, line length, route, stations, connections with other public transport modes, expected ridership and service frequency, fare system, rolling stock, track, power, signalling technology, and contact person/organisation for the project. There are separate Excel workbooks for each of the five geographic regions.
