The following link to a story on npr.org describes the on-going development of light rail systems around the country, including in many cities that were once auto dominated. Light rail systems and modern street cars are helping reshape city development from sprawl into a more walkable and pedestrian-friendly design.

Urban mass transit as it once was 70-100 years ago and how it ought to have been all along.
