ANAHEIM, Calif. — A proposed 3.2-mile streetcar system that will connect a transportation hub to various Anaheim destinations, including Disneyland, is being touted as the most expensive project of its kind in recent memory. An analysis showed that on a per-mile basis, the estimated $319-million price tag on the Anaheim project is higher than any of the last 11 streetcar projects proposed nationwide, according to a Voice of OC report.

Factors driving up the cost include development of a hybrid power system where overhead wires are only used on part of the line, as well as the need for more vehicles for the resort district's heavy traffic loads. For the full story, click here.
