I think it's great and would love to see more support behind it.
The 2.55 mile Oakland Streetcar would tie together Jack London Square, Chinatown, Old Oakland, Downtown, the Financial District, Uptown, Upper Broadway, and Piedmont Avenue, connecting to two BART Stations, 18+ AC Transit lines, a ferry terminal, a Capitol Corridor/Amtrak station, the Kaiser and Alta Bates Summit Medical Centers, the Paramount and Fox Theaters, Mosswood Park, Lake Merritt, the Jack London Market, and potentially a new waterfront A's baseball stadium. The Oakland Streetcar would cost roughly $87-$92 million to construct and $2.9-$3.2 million annually to operate, and attract roughly 6,900-7,800 riders per day. The biggest potential benefit to Oakland, however, would be economic development.
