Detroit gets a new street car

Along with the news about the rail station being bought by Ford is a story on a privately funded street car running down Woodward Ave called the QLine after Quicken Loans bought the naming rights just like a football stadium.

That announcement is from last year.  I beleive there have been more recent postings on here about it.  How is the ridership now?

I have been riding the QLine for over a year. I even have a video about this on my YouTube Channel.

Thanks for posting. I wish they would bring back street cars to Chicago also.

How many bus vehicles could 182 million buy?

How much diesel fuel and tires, Ive seen Detroit buses they don't seem to last long, Will the streetcars last longer ? I don't know. I don't know why but people seem to use a street car more than the bus ?  I know when I travel and use public transportation, I like the streetcar better. They have to try something to lessen traffic. Besides this is privately funded.
