Streetcar named boondoggle

It was clear from the beginning that Tommy’s Trolly — the Milwaukee streetcar known as The Hop— was going to be a boondoggle of epic proportions.

Time has confirmed what everyone but Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and the most delusional electric rail supporters could see long ago, like a slow train coming.

Fox6 News looks at a streetcar that’s bleeding money but is too costly to shut down.

Watch the video at Fox6 News.

  • A venture by a Democrat that costs money now! Had to have his Street Car-now no one comes to Milw! Your no Mayor Maier Mr Barrett! That money could have helped somewhere else and not cost Milw more expenses!

  • If it stopped at my front door and waited ten minutes for me, gave me a whiskey and seven when I entered with some cheese to nibble, had some good tunes playing, I’d probably still walk because no matter what happens, you’re still in Milwaukee. Location, location, location.

  • How loving of the late Margaret Thatcher eight years after her death to provide us a visual of what she meant when she said, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

    I still miss that lady…

  • Anyone with half a brain should know how a vehicle on rails works. A vehicle on rails can only go where the rails are. If the rails are blocked you can’t move. A rubber tire vehicle can be sent down almost any street in the city. The ability to change routes as needed is an asset that is impossible with a vehicle on rails.
