Snow, ice stop Portland Streetcar dead in its tracks

We have said we told you so, but now the model for the "modern" Streetcar, Portland, Oregon reports Streetcar shutdown because of a little bit of bad weather.  Meanwhile, Cincinnati's trusty buses roll along!

Watch it here:


  1. Except Portland typically has much warmer winters than Cincinnati and so didn't build its system to operate in winters it doesn't have. Facts and COAST don't mix:


    Here are streetcars operating in heavy snow in Toronto. There are systems in Calgary and Edmonton, which are even farther north.

  3. Umm, the Portland buses didn't do so well either, guys.


We follow the "living room" rule. Exhibit the same courtesy you would show guests in your home.
