STREETCARS WILL SIT IN TRAFFIC JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, July 20, 2017 — Deployment of The Wave streetcars is years away — if it ever happens — but already the streetcar system is experiencing significant delays.

Despite years of promising 7.5-minute headways, the Wave's creators and boosters have already doubled that waiting time — to 15 minutes ... and counting!

Wait time between cars is known as "headway," and it's important that the headway be as short as possible so that people will use the transit system. No-one wants to stand around and sweat while waiting for a streetcar.

But the Wave's creators made a fatal mistake several years ago when they added "The Flagler Loop" to the system. It's a loop-de-loop around Flagler Village that made developers happy, but which lengthened the time it takes for a streetcar to make its run.
