Is it really being proposed that these streetcars NOT have dedicated areas/lanes? I'm asking because the streetcars I saw in France recently had dedicated areas. Either they were running though closed off streets, or in a median (with mowed grass on it ... making the rails nearly invisible), or in lanes shared with taxis or the like. I can't remember seeing an example of a streetcar vying for the same lanes as general traffic would be using. Hence why in my mind, the bus lanes on K Street are undoubtedly meant to be temporary ... until a street car line can be built in the space of those lanes ... providing quiet and efficient transportation AND a green median (or two)!
