Can streetcars save America's cities? - CNN.com As a kid I rode the Street Cars to school everyday 'til I got my driver's license, and today ride BART to the Street Car and on to AT&T park (the home of the World Champion Giants, btw). Building the cars and rails would provide jobs, badly needed today, reduce our need for foreign oil, reduce pollution and make commutes less stressful for many. Of course some disagree. What's your opinion?
