    It was probably easier for this streetcar to get added to Portland, as it was part of a revitalization of a no longer useful industrial area where streetcars and trains used to run. Some of the old stations had sat along the park blocks for half a century since the last car had run and the tracks removed.

    Also, it's the only streetcar you have to pay to use downtown, too. While the developers liked it, they weren't willing to go far enough for it to be free like the other downtown blocks are.
