The QLine is the first streetcar in Detroit since 1956.
While it is cool that Detroit is trying alternatives to their bus lines, unless this is part of a broader transportation strategy, it is doomed to failure. Currently the only mass transit that feeds into Detroit is either the suburb buses or the Amtrak Wolverine. The Wolverine comes into the city three times per day from each direction. If rail is going to be choice, there needs to be a more frequent commuter rail, so hopefully the Ann Arbor to Detroit line comes to fruition. I guess we will see what happens.
