Metro is holding a public meeting Tuesday to give residents a chance to give their input on a plan to bring streetcar service back to Downtown Los Angeles.
A non-profit organization called Los Angeles Streetcar wants to restore the routes that were a big hit back in the 1930s. The rise of the automobile industry contributed to the streetcar's demise.
The current plan calls for a four-mile streetcar system that would run seven days a week. The routes would cover areas including the Historic Broadway District, Chinatown, Bunker Hill, L.A. Live and the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Supporters say the streetcar project would provide a boost to other local initiatives, such as the Bringing Back Broadway campaign, while creating thousands of jobs and generating millions of dollars for the city.
