I found a cool link to another proposed LRT system by way of some comments over at Null Space. Check it out here.
It looks pretty comprehensive and pretty aggressive utilizing at least some, if not all new rights of way which would require the land to be acquired, graded and tracks laid. Additionally, it's not stated by the map's creator, but I am assuming some of the tracks would be underground (i.e. through the South Side and through the Hill District, Oakland, and Squirrel Hill).
It's expensive and unlikely, but boy would I love to have an LRT system like that!
