A new way to get around downtown—by streetcar? That’s what a governing board of local business owners, private investors, and district representatives would like to see as an option downtown. The idea is to create a streetcar that will loop around downtown Los Angeles and connect various neighborhoods, businesses, cultural centers, shopping plazas and entertainment venues with one another via a fixed-route streetcar. It’s argued that such a system will benefit residents and visitors alike as well as boost development in the area. As of this fall, the project is faced with a huge budget gap. Also, the area is already served by many other transit alternatives. How do you feel? Is this a good idea or a waste of tax dollars?
