Re: “Downtown streetcar to be built by Siemens

I'm sorry, a Streetcar that serves areas already serviced by Marta and not fixing cars/trucks off the street to reduce commute time/congestion/pollution is a complete waste of my money. Even if it's only $4 of my share.

Wrong destinations.

Free sites? Uhhh. Have you been to any larger city overseas? Mass transit removes congestion OR Goes between tourist areas that will generate revenue for businesses or generate tax dollars....this entire project is a political hand shake like many of the good ol' boy deals in Atlanta.

And no this is not a pilot....ask Houston how poorly streetcars work for them? Ask how little capacity they really have compared to real rail...I worked on a regional project there and we were looking at ripping out the street cars because it's not a good form of transportation unless it's very short runs with no other traffic in the routes.
