Light Rail Day: Since 2011
Light Rail Day was founded under the name “Letbanedagen” in 2009 in Odense/Denmark and was at that time mend to be the national Light Rail conference for Denmark. The founder Bernd Reuß got the idea after it was clear, that there would be financing for the first Danish City Tram System in Aarhus, more than 4 decades after the last City Tram in Copenhagen got shut down.
Very soon the conference developed into one of the most important conferences for City Trams in Scandinavia. Bernd Reuß, a German based in Copenhagen, is the event manager since the beginning in 2009. Light Rail Day has been to Odense, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Copenhagen and Bergen.
