      Downtown Should Bring Back the Streetcar
      Portland Success Shows That System Could Spur Development And Reduce Traffic

      As the financial and cultural anchor of the West Coast, Los Angeles typically exports creative ideas to communities around the country. Thus, it may seem odd to suggest that America's second-largest city should actually import a transportation concept from Portland, Ore.: a downtown streetcar system.

      There are numerous reasons to do so: Having a streetcar could stimulate new development, reduce traffic, and bring the neighborhoods of Downtown closer together.
