USA Today has an article about the return of the street car to several American cities. Streetcars were common from the late nineteenth to the midtwentieth century. As we all know most of the tracks got ripped out and the cars were replaced with buses. As cities have tried to revamp their urban cores, some are using streetcars as a means of attracting developers, businesses and residents back. Electric streetcars have many advantages, they're cleaner than diesel buses, and rails are cheaper than subway tunnels.
