i'm very happy that DC is looking at adding some real streetcar capacity. i would only add that i hope this is only the beginning. i think we should plan for the disappearance of cars from our city, and that means people will want access to dignified motorized transit -- that means rail -- whether streetcars, trams, light rail, subways, heavy rail, whatever.

also, i'd be curious if streetcars could be made to run in 'express mode' -- only stopping once every mile or two? local cars could 'pull-off' once in a while.
