(or you could do a short loop around the capital to service all the state office buildings in vicinity.) That addresses A.) Connecting the largest near dwntwn population bases. Ingersoll/Grand and East Village- close to Court Ave. too B.) Enables a nice sized route for dwntwn workers to take adv. of.
2nd line: The main line might be good enough at this point but in the future I would love to see a connector from Drake to downtown somehow. Give easy access to downtown for x,000 18-22 yr olds, along with another large population enclave of Sherman Hill and the Drake neighborhoods.
after that, we can talk about a monorail from the Airport to Downtown..........
I agree with this statement. The trolley should connect major surrounding population centers to Downtown. If the line were connected to Ingersoll (via Sherman Hill)...I would use it almost daily. In addition, it would connect downtown residents to Dahl's, which always seems to be used as a deterrent (no major grocery store downtown...which I think is bunk) to live downtown.
