San Antonio Streetcar Plans at Risk
"Mayor Ivy Taylor addressed the VIA Metropoltian [sic] Transit board Thursday and reiterated the city's hope that the agency will 'pause' its downtown streetcar plan, explaining the need to develop a multimodal transportation plan that's in the best interest of the entire community," reports Vianna Davila.
"The mayor also said the City Council will vote on withdrawing its $32 million commitment to the project, a move she said the council will take up next week."
