Joe Edwards sent me a note last week about restoring electric streetcar service in the City. Joe is excited about a plan to run restored vintage streetcars on fixed tracks through the Loop. He says that the system would “add to the quality of life, increase tourism, and spur economic development.”
It’s a good idea. Integrating streetcars into the existing public transportation grid might make the streetcars much more than just tourist attractions and not just in the Loop.
