In about three years from now, we’ll be riding street cars from Oak Cliff to downtown.

According to this story, the TIGER grant the city got to fund the project requires that construction happen pronto. The city won a $23 million grant the city got to fund the $35 million project.

The current plan brings the street car line from Houston Street to Methodist hospital, but it wouldn’t go the extra half-mile or so to the Bishop Arts District.

A larger street car plan is expected to cost between $800-$900 million.
