I’ve always thought that the streetcar should be brought back into wide use, mainly because it’s far less expensive to set up street car lines than to dig the tunnels needed for a subway.

This article seems to agree.

The piece talks a good bit about the St. Charles streetcar in New Orleans. I have some wonderful memories of riding that line with my friend Dzifa, taking it from her Garden District apartment to the bars and restaurants of the French Quarter.
