Morning Poll: Streetcar vs. Articulated Bus

The public comment period on the alternatives and environmental analysis for the planned Columbia Pike streetcar ended yesterday (Thursday), but the debate over the streetcar rages on.

The streetcar plan has spawned a very vocal group of opponents. Many of those streetcar critics say that one of the alternatives from the analysis — articulated buses — is a cheaper and in some ways superior transportation option for Columbia Pike. Streetcar supporters disagree, however, and often point to economic development along streetcar corridors as the reason why rail is preferable.

Amid the back-and-forth arguments over the streetcar and the potential for articulated bus service, where do you stand?
