Condos Spur Streetcar Interest In Miami
In a farsighted move, Miami leaders are pushing for new streetcars to be the public transit of choice for downtown. Bolstered by the success of similar systems in other Sun Belt cities, Miami thinks that trolleys will convince young professionals to use mass transit rather than be stuck in traffic. In order to speed development, city officials hope to forgo federal funding for the plan, instead raising the money internally. Several council members, representing the poorest neighborhoods, claim this new plan only serves the "Gucci-driven."
