ABSTRACT
The number of passenger journeys on light rail systems in England was reported to have increased by 27 percent from 93.9 million in 1999/2000 to 119.6 million in 2000/01. Much of the growth in the last five years has been in London, England, with use of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) almost tripling since 19995/96. In the last year, growth in DLR patronage has continued, and the Croydon Tramlink came into service, with 15 million passenger journeys in 2000/01/ The Ten Year Plan for Transport of Great Britain, which was published in July 2000, set a target of doubling light rail use by 2010. The light rail network is continuing to expand, with a new 14 kilometer system under construction in Nottingham due to open in 2003 and an extension to the Tyne and Wear system due to open in 2002.
