Resumo

The present paper describes a proposal for constructing a Light Rail Vehicle (LRV) system, called VLT in Portuguese, in the city of Petrópolis, in Brazil, in line with the modern concept of granting urban mobility to intermediate cities. The studied city joins diverse conditions to improve its mobility, such as, its mild climate, forests, and topographical setting, its population, its historical and developing stage, and its cultural heritage, composed at the origin by German immigrants. The project emphasizes low cost plans and simplicity to propose the use of the VLT between the center of the city and all its districts along the ancient and no longer used rail line connecting Rio de Janeiro to northern states, in order to be adjusted to traffic jams that affect all displacements. The historical development of the city is described in its specific aspects, which also justifies the present proposal
