Thinkin’ About Streetcars

Greater Greater Washington has been talking about streetcars all week long and today’s entry on how to handle paying for fares on streetcars is definitely interesting. When we were recently in San Francisco, you could buy tickets from kiosks, or from the driver, or use their SmarTrip-wannabe system, which made for a lot of sense. More ways is better, but should we put it on an honor system like GGW thinks we should? I can see this being abused, but I also like the idea of more ways to pay, rather than just the driver.

What do you think for our eventual streetcar system?

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
