Some 59.94 percent of the respondents of a recent survey expressed support to Macao's elevated light metro plan, the Infrastructure Development Office (IDO) announced Thursday.
The survey, which was conducted by the Macao Studies Center of the University of Macao under the commission of the IDO, interviewed 1,508 residents by telephone.
Some 40.11 percent of the respondents possess at least one car or motorcycle, the survey said.
The overhead light metro is planned to carry 500,000 passengers per day by 2011, the government announced in July.
Macao's resident population stood at 526,000 at the end of June, when the number of licensed vehicles reached a record 169,410.
