The VLR near the Transport Museum

Coventry Very Light Rail (VLR) is a public transport project being led by Coventry City Council with the aim of providing Coventry with affordable urban rail. It involves the development of a new, lightweight vehicle and an innovative shallow track form, which will ensure this new mode of transport is affordable for small to medium-sized towns and cities such as Coventry.
