A Street Car project in Omaha needs to include the Zoo, Fourteenth Street, Old Mkt and to Uptown to make any sense to me. Will $156 million cover that? When was that estimate made? What local money? Is this after they pay off the Century Link?
All I know is that every City I've been in where they put in a Street Car or Light Rail (whatever they call it) it cost a fortune and has to be subsidized by you forever.
Some Cities do a virtual ticket which nobody pays, turnstiles that people jump, swipe cards that cant be verified even the "honor" system where people just pay because they should. Surprisingly the last one never works.
