Rail is a rail-bound form of public transport
that is used on the scale of the urban region and the city. In contrast
to train and metro, light rail is suitable for integration to a certain

Urbanism and mobility, it is and remains a marriage of convenience. Rob van der Bijl (Lightrail.nl) is one of the few in the Netherlands who can call himself expert in both fields. He regularly publishes on his ideas. How does he view the future of city, mobility and the consequences for citizens? Read the interview from Emergent City at Favas.net.
