National Geographic calls the Waterfront Streetcar one of the world’s Top 10 Trolley Rides. We need to bring it back!
Bertha is stuck. The Legislature is ready to force Seattle to pay for any cost overruns on the tunnel, or to kill the project entirely. The city is cutting back on its grand vision for the Waterfront due to lack of funds. The Waterfront is languishing.
But the City Council is looking at the changes that district elections will bring in 2016. Old council members are announcing their retirements, and new candidates are emerging. Ask candidates: Do you support bringing back the Waterfront Streetcar?
And tell them: Yes, we the voters do!
The Waterfront Streetcar, possibly with a mix of heritage and modern equipment, is a vitally-needed, accessible, and affordable transportation link that will serve visitors and residents alike.
Let’s not wait. Bring back the Waterfront Streetcar now!
