Video: Streetcar Unveililng, with Interviews

Video of yesterday’s streetcar unveiling, with short interviews with Rep. DeFazio and Rep. Blumenauer. In particular, I asked both representatives about funding opportunities for improving transit access in existing corridors which are not slated for streetcar or light rail projects.

    Don’t get too carried away with making promises, Pete. You do have constituents in your district that will never ride a Portland streetcar.

    Al, you are the first to ever compare any of my work to Fellini, and I must say it warms my heart.

    If it were like a Fellini production, whenever a train is onscreen it would be shown entering a tunnel. Granted, the only tunnel on the line, where the train crosses under I-205 just north of Division, probably lacks the requisite cinematic grandeur…
