Public works departments across the nation are developing strategies to manage the increased transportation demands placed upon the public right-of-way and to use data to better city services and improve the citizen experience. Two cities that have similar experiences are Kansas City, Missouri, and Sydney, South Wales.
Mr. Waldron’s study proposes to study each city’s approach to the implementation of modern streetcar systems within the public right-of-way and the development of a smart city policy. This “comparing of notes” will result in shared lessons learned for streetcar programs and what it means to be a smart city.
