    How much of the streetcar route is in shared curbside lanes, as opposed to reserved streetcar-only lanes?

  2. Dudemeister says:

    I hear the anti-streetcar crowd has about 4000 signatures.

    That’s a nice nice of signatures.

    FOR ME TO POOP ON.

    They need 25k in 10 days. It’s as good as done. Plus JCP, benefactors of Milwaukee’s new tallest building (and Wisconsin’s largest company), want it done. So much for the private sector being against it.

    corrections:

    *nice number

    **JCI, not the retailer

    Autocorrect betrayed me.

  4. Dave Reid says:

    @Alan The initial route of the streetcar will run in shared lanes.

  5. Rob Johnston says:

    I was against the streetcar until the future expansion was explained. Now I think it’s exciting. Go for it.
