Modern streetcar — people powered

April 19, 2007

For my Albuquerque transit news, I go to Big Albuquerque-like Things. John has been hot on the tail of the modern streetcar for the last several months, and he has done a great job of it, too! A few weeks ago he decided to form a citizens group in support of the streetcar, Albuquerque Residents for a Modern Streetcar. Tonight is the groups first meeting and public forum:

Heights Community Center
823 Buena Vista SE
Thursday, April 19 at 6:00 PM
A map, anyone?

I’m interested to see what happens— who turns out— what folks have to say. I’d personally like to see a lightrail system rather than a modern streetcar, but in any case, it is healthy Albuquerqueans have these discussions now before we find ourselves in L.A.-like traffic snarls.

See you there!

Oh! RapidRide is expanding to the Westside, which is sexy.

    Dude, what happened at the meeting? I really meant to go and came home, checked your site and yelled an expletive because I had every intention of attending. Give us the 411. Thanks.

    Hey, thanks for spreading the word about the meeting! 😀

    To be honest, not a whole lot happened. There were just 9 of us there and we talked about the campaign and what we should do, but we didn’t really pick a definite course of action or anything like that, we just talked.

    If you guys didn’t make it to the meeting, but you want to be a part of the campaign, just drop me an email at abqstreetcar@gmail.com, and I’ll add you to the list.
