Go for the Gold: Why Streetcars Are a Win for Charlotte


Download Go for the Gold: Why Streetcars are a Win for Charlotte. The purpose of this report is to both educate the public about streetcars and to provide local policymakers with additional data so that they can make informed decisions regarding the Gold Line and future projects. The report examines the background of Charlotte’s past and currently under construction streetcar systems and their expected economic, social, and environmental benefits. Also discussed are several other streetcar systems in the United States: the history, impacts, and funding of two modern systems, one historic system, and the funding strategies and sources of several planned modern systems.
