Fort Lauderdale — "The Wave" Advances

Rail Transit Online, August 2010

"The Wave", a proposed 2.7-mi. (4.3 km) double-track downtown streetcar circulator, could get a major boost if a transit funding bill is approved by Congress. The measure includes $1.8 million for project planning and engineering. Construction could start next July if $135 million in capital funding is available, allowing revenue service to begin in July 2013. The plans call for 10 solar-powered stations featuring real-time passenger information.

Local officials believe the streetcar will encourage development, bring more people downtown and provide convenient connections between community points of Interest.
