22 U.S. Cities Planning New Streetcars

Changes in USDOT and FTA policies help fund streetcar lines, making them more attractive to cities across the US.

Rick Gustafson, executive director of Portland Streetcar Inc. in Oregon, said at a speaking engagement that these 22 cities could begin laying track within the next 2 years.

"Some of those projects will no doubt suffer delays for financial or other reasons, Gustafson later told New Urban News, 'but I would predict that in 24 months there will probably be five to eight systems under construction.'"

The 22 cities include Tucson, Seattle, Little Rock and Los Angeles.
