Mayor Barrett has proposed a new streetcar system for Milwaukee. The problem is that it goes nowhere. If it went from the airport to the train & bus station and later through downtown, it might have a slight chance of survival. The streetcar must have a definite route that goes somewhere that people might want to go. If the plan stays as it is now, it will be a costly venture and a waste of tax dollars. Nobody will want to use this streetcar. Please consider changing the present plans and have the streetcar go somewhere instead of nowhere.
