Breeder-haters gonna breeder-hate. All I'm saying is that every carfree breeder who wants to take their kids to OMSI is about to have a new, convenient option for getting the hell out of there at the end of the day. Sometimes just getting your ass on something that moves can be more important than moving quickly. Bikes rule, but that slow, sideways elevator they call the Streetcar rules, too.
One note on the OMSI to the Pearl time complaint: It's not about getting from OMSI to the Pearl. Those people have cars. As it stands, the closest TriMet stop is on the Hawthorne Bridge. If you've ever humped a stroller up those stairs at Water Ave because you didn't want to go the long way and, aw fuck, that's more stairs than it looks like on googlemaps... Anyway, a Streetcar ride from OMSI that connects to a bus line without having to drag a tired toddler up those fucking stairs will be a godsend.
