Adding length to individual streetcars would certainly increase capacity for that one streetcar, but it would reduce the number of streetcars running. Less streetcars means longer wait times for potential passengers. I think longer waiting time is the more pressing problem for most transit users, rather than crowding.

And growing up in Toronto, I'm familiar with what happens when a streetcar breaks down or is involved in an accident- the entire route gets shut down behind the crippled streetcar. That's not a problem for buses.
