How Smooth is the Ride on a Modern Streetcar?
According to Jake Mecklenborg who recently took a trip out to Seattle and Portland, “Totally smooth. Less vibration and less noise than the tram at Cincinnati’s airport. The other thing is when you’re at a stop, there is no noise whatsoever aside from the chatter of other passengers since the motors turn off. No squeaking brakes, no surge when it accelerates.”
