Well good news – it’s finally going to happen in Downtown Detroit! Construction is set to begin on the new M-1 Rail in July, with a completion date set sometime in late 2016.
The cars will hold up to 100 passengers and some will run on wires and others powered by lithium battery.
According to M-1Rail.com:
The 3.3-mile streetcar route will include 20 stations serving 12 locations and connect riders to key destinations along Woodward Avenue. The streetcar will serve curb-side stations for nearly the entire length of the route, transitioning to center-running at the north and south ends of the system.
