My post was pure speculation.

I support this project, but its planning has quite frequently defied logic, so I'm not sure that my guesses are actually any good.

Oh, and parking isn't going to do much good. LRT and streetcars rarely lure people away from their cars directly. Nobody's going to drive halfway to board the streetcar.

DC's streetcar network is going to fill the gaps between Metro lines, and relieve crowded bus corridors. We already have a good system for rapidly getting people in and out of the city, and there's no good reason to add a second system that does the same job half as well.

The streetcar network should be planned to capitalize on the inherent strengths of the mode. It's cheap to build, fits into small spaces, and is more efficient than a bus.
