NYC Streetcar Article

Streetsblog is an interesting blog out of NYC that I read once in a while. Last week they had a post about streetcars that generated lots of discussion. One of the comments:
The long loading time for buses is caused by their kneeling, narrow entrances, high steps, and need to have the driver handle each wheelchair - plus time-consuming fare collection. I think all of these can be eliminated on the trains with wide doors opening at grade, and not having the driver collect fares one at a time.
