Froggie, you keep saying that option 2 is more easily converted to streetcars, but I don't understand why. Why can't track run on the outside and commuter buses use the center lane to pass.

The tracks on P and O probably aren't in good enough shape to be reused. They may not even have the right gauge. And there was talk of giving them historic preservation protection.

I'd tweak the map here and there and maybe add some lines (23rd NW up to Florida and along it all the way to the starburst and another on Blandensburg Road), but it's a good looking setup.
