Three streetcar lines are projected to open this year. The Tucson SunLink will bring urban rail to the desert city for the first time, while Seattle’s First Hill Streetcar will connect hill-fairing residents to the lower parts of downtown and major sports venues. The Atlanta Streetcar will also make its debut this year. Curiously, the streetcar will feature longer vehicles that are more reminiscent of light rail systems. Meanwhile, at least 15 cities will continue construction on their streetcars. This includes Cincinnati, whose under-construction streetcar was briefly “paused” on the pretext of fiscal concerns until the City Council voted to restart work when the governing body learned that the city would only marginally save money by stopping the project.
