Express your support for D.C. streetcars

The D.C. Council is set to cast votes on funding for the streetcar system, and as Streetcars For DC explains, the process so far has been a mixed bag, with some council members supporting full funding, some supporting only partial funding, and others questioning the entire program.

With such a muddled picture, now is clearly the time for streetcar supporters and opponents alike to contact the council and express an opinion. You can do so using this form.

Personally, I am a big supporter of streetcars, but if you're not sold on the idea, you may want to read my previous piece outlining why streetcars are better than buses. It's a complicated subject, and it would be a shame to oppose such a great idea for the wrong reasons.
