A Streetcar Named Success
"Tacoma's brand-new light rail transit streetcar has been on a roll -- exceeding its ridership projections (by years in advance), and achieving the central-city redevelopment goals planners had hoped for. At just 1.6 miles in length through downtown Tacoma, Tacoma Link is by far the shortest modern LRT system yet installed in a North American city. And, while its $80.4-million cost was steep, it's built to eventually accommodate the much heavier trains ...of Sound Transit's regional Link interurban LRT system of which the first segment, heading into the Rainier Valley, is now under construction."
