Time to Celebrate! (Gibbs)
I'll be heading out the door momentarily to get downtown for the ceremonial first train and celebration of the opening of the Portland Streetcar extension to Gibbs St.
Join us at 11am today for the official ceremonies (read speeches) at Gibbs and Moody (below the Tram landing tower). Or come back to the same location for the party from 11-5 tomorrow (Saturday).
I'll have photos this afternoon.

The nextbus map looks really cool with that long stretch between what used to be the end and Gibbs! :) I'm diggin it.

The NextBus map also seems to show the route as double-tracked... or was this done intentionally because of some software limitation?

I think the Nextbus map is purely schematic. There are some wierd extra lines at RiverPlace that don't make much sense to me either.

Michael Powell's remarks about the line were quite interesting, that the next extension of the line will be to Lake Oswego.. easy to do on the existing right of way, oossibly on th esame tracks wilth upgrading...
