My favorite twitter posting today:

"ProTip: building lavish taxpayer-funded stadiums for billionaires doesn't make your city look modern, it makes you look like slack-jawed, easily conned yokels."

Jungle Jim has one. It currently occasionally runs around his complex in Fairfield providing about daily transportation to about the same number of people as the streetcar. Maybe he can sell it to the city.

I watch them run empty all week long. Hardly anyone pays when they do actually ride it. The consultants who provided the initial numbers should be sued for negligence. We are approaching 30% of ridership projections and even less when it comes to operating income. It goes do n monthly.

Each month it falls deeper and deeper into the labrea tarpit of more and more lost taxpayer millions.

Only people this was good for were the LLC's of people around local government and their benefactors who knew the route ahead of time and purchased up dilapidated properties for cheap.

I have road Street Cars in SF and NO. They go someplace and they look charming.

Our "Street Cars" go virtually nowhere and are not charming.

That’s because after it was voted on twice Republicans cut the funding and half the route. It was supposed to go all the way up
The hill to UC.

Going uptown was not in any of the original official plans. Lots of talk about it though.

The plan was to run it up the hill until Kasich pulled federal money that had already been allocated to it.

And really how much would that have added?

Instead a unmitigated loss it would just be a big loss.

It would have connected the two major emolument centers of the city...and eliminated the complaint that it goes nowhere.

If the end of the streetcar line in Clifton was at the front door of the world's largest Golden Corral, another waste of private dollars managed by a public institution, the project would be evidentiary proof that planet earth has created its own black hole.
