Things to keep in mind

  • Articles for our Metro Rail Today Magazine should have a journalistic approach, and be written in language simple enough to be comprehensible to a simple graduate school student, with enough research and insight to be interesting to a research person.
  • It is the responsibility of the writer to verify, before submitting the article, the veracity of all facts and statements claimed in the story.
  • It is also their responsibility to ensure the correct spelling of all proper names, place names, foreign spellings (with accents) and addresses.
  • Urban Transport News will not cover any expenses other than those specifically stipulated in our contract with the journalist or photographer.
  • Generally, we are likely to favour articles or stories that stake out strong positions, feature compelling characters, tell an untold story, and propose concrete solutions to pressing problems.
