Canada: Montreal's new LRT fails test of inaugural morning rush

CBC News: The National has the story.

A switch problem forced Montreal’s new light rail transit system to shut down during the morning rush hour on its first official day of operation.

So-called "LRT" is a transportation system based on electrically powered light rail vehicles (LRV) that operates on a track in a dedicated right-of-way (meaning separated lanes). They are designed to deliver rapid, reliable, and indeed safe transportation services. 

Depending on the project, in the event of a schedule delay, some LRTs have the ability to change the traffic lights to green as they approach, so they can move even quicker along the route.
