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.
