I recently leaned about the Downtown Street Car Project and thought it would be something interesting to share with you. Would be very happy to see this concept progress; it would most certainly make getting around the city easier when driving is out of the question. Also a smart addition to the city's "green" agenda!
"The success of last year's Olympic Line demonstration has reaffirmed the City's commitment to the Downtown Streetcar Project. There is more work to be done, including coordination with the City's highest transit priority - the UBC Line Rapid Transit study on Broadway. In the meantime, the City will continue to safeguard right-of-way for the future development of the Downtown Streetcar and look for opportunities to move the project forward."
