On its first day of operations, our streetcar will have many advantages that the other modern streetcar systems that are currently operating did not have on their first day:
- More residents living along the line that any other streetcar on its first day of operation.
- More Fortune 500 companies than every other currently operating modern streetcar in the country–combined.
- More professional sports stadia than any other system (Seattle’s stadia are 1.6 miles south of their streetcar, Portland’s stadium is across the Willamette River, Tacoma has no teams)
These jobs, attractions, and residents that are already present along the line will make our streetcar a success, and the new development created along the route will ensure our streetcar remains an important community asset for decades to come.
