@MJ 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.

Have you ever ridden an X2 bus? They tend to be insanely overcrowded, in my experience. This wouldn't be a line just to serve hipsters who want to drink on H St.; it would also serve the many many residents along the H St. corridor, who could very much use a better connection to the rest of the city. Bringing more business to the shops and restaurants along the line is great, too. As people often have trouble understanding: Just because you personally don't use a service doesn't mean it isn't worth providing.

Of course, it'll be a lot better when it runs further than the Union Station parking garage, but it should make a significant difference right away.
