New York has $300K for streetcar study

As a follow-up, Yonah Freemark reported that New York actually has $295,000 in federal money to spend on a streetcar study. Apparently, the money came through in a 2005 transportation bill, and the NYC Department of Transportation hopes to spend it this year on a feasibility study. At some point, we have to stop studying transportation improvements, though, and start implementing them.
