You forgot to mention the biggest difference between streetcars and buses -- cost (both capital and operational). Streetcars are likely more cost effective for dense areas with high ridership while buses probably have lower costs per passenger mile for lower ridership routes. Streetcars have higher capital costs but need less maintenance than buses and produce less wear-and-tear on roads. So, streetcars make more sense when you're sure you can spread the higher startup cost over many passenger-rides.
