I predict that the streetcar will open on H Street to great fanfare in mid-2014, most of us will take exactly one trip on it, from Union Station to Rock n Roll hotel, cab home and never ride a streetcar again. Sad that so much time and money has been thrown at this.

I used to really like the streetcar idea, but the more I've learned about it, the more I think it is just a gimmick to revitalize certain parts of town and has nothing to do with creating real transit options for residents. Taking years to build a 1.5 mile stretch of track has seriously killed the buzz so many people once had for this project. And now once it's done, it will be utterly useless unless you live on H street. Outside the context of a city-wide system, this is just a side show.
