When coupled with promotion of routes where significant volumes of car traffic can be attracted, commercial schemes become practical. Here the operating surplus can be used to fund part or even all of the capital investment. This would be a win-win situation, where public authorities can benefit from having new light rail schemes in their areas, without the cost or trouble of having to promote them. TRAM Power Ltd. is working with a number of local authorities which are interested in having privately promoted and funded light rail or tramway schemes.
