Figure 10C-7. Light Rail Transit Vehicle Dynamic Envelope

This figure illustrates the light rail transit vehicle dynamic envelope. A legend shows a black arrow indicating the direction of travel in the lanes.

The figure shows a head-on drawing of a light rail transit vehicle on a cross section of track and surrounding roadway or sidewalk. Vertical dotted lines drawn from the top of the roof beyond the wheels on the track define the light rail transit vehicle dynamic envelope—the width of the vehicle and anything extending over the sides of the vehicle.

Between the dynamic envelope and the roadway or sidewalk, a differential area is shown in a contrasting pavement texture and/or color from the roadway or sidewalk. Beyond this area, edge pavement markings and then the roadway or sidewalk are shown.
