Two UW Profs have produced a study for 5 potential extensions to the Seattle Streetcar network, the Seattle Times reports. The study considers several financing options, from sales taxes to LIDs to dedicated parking fees, and posit the above routes and alignments “for exploration and comparative purposes only.”

We do know that people are more likely to ride streetcars than buses, but who will the ridership be for this downtown-centric line? Is it intended for commuters who work downtown and live there? Or is it rather for people running around within downtown, either tourists or workers who have multiple meetings or destinations? I’m curious.

Anyway, maps are fun, so dig in if you’re curious. The full report (.pdf) is here.
