Home > Blog > Street Car Come Back!
I just got done reading an interesting blog post on the history of street cars and how to lay the track for their return.http://conservationreport.com/2008/08/20/public-transportation-streetcars-making-a-comeback-in-american-cities-but-they-shouldn%e2%80%99t-have-left-in-the-first-place/I'd like to point out at the Minneapolis and Cleveland had extensive street car systems. I bring these cities up an an example because they are the two I'm most familiar with. In Mpls and St. Paul (the twin cities are full of lakes) there were even boat trollies/fairies incorporated into the system. I've done a few projects involving signage for water taxis but I'm wondering it there are even more opportunities to revive past transit strategies and make them viable models for the here and now.
