What Can I Do To Convince People To See The Convenience Of A Streetcar System?

Postby bocley » Sat Sep 09, 2017 4:19 pm

How can I get the citizens of my town to see the other side to this debate, and how can I get them to see how economic this system will be?

Many senior citizens in my town can't drive and need a better way to get around town; how can I get the citizens see this side as well?

I've even made fliers too, how can I set them up without getting in legal trouble?

You would probably have to lie.
A lot.

Show the capital costs, the streetcars and supporting infrastructure, including parking and maintenance yard.
Show the cost of the loan to pay for this.
Show the fixed capital costs over the projected life of the streetcars.
Show the operating costs, fuel, driver, supervision, training, insurance, registration, maintenance.
Show the expected ridership and how much each rider would have to pay for the ride to cover the expenses.

Now explain why the taxpayers are expected to pay difference between costs and what people would be willing to pay to ride the system.

You wouldn't have to convince me; I love streetcars!

What city is this for?
