Detroit — Transit vs. Development Debate

October 2017

The sites Streetsblog USA and Citylab reference coverage of Detroit's Q-Line streetcar to argue the claim that streetcars are economic development tools but not real transit.

Countering this, the Q-Line takes the opposite viewpoint in a sponsored article in the Detroit Free Press, describing the streetcar's first phase as an important first step toward more regional transportation investments in the Detroit region.
