Why does the streetcar need a bus bridge everytime it screws up?

The Portland Streetcar is nearby multiple bus stops which makes me wonder why indeed to they need to be replaced by buses when they fail, which is often.

Why can't people just be diverted to the bus service rather than getting even more buses to run on the streetcar line? The streetcars are nothing but expensive little toys that are funded by your tax dollars

The streetcar is most definitely not "seldom ridden". They have an extra train running to the new university building to pick up everybody.

Leave the Street car alone, it will ultimately become a "weird" tourist attraction someday in the future.

Hmmm. Does the CL Line serve the CLSB??? Jason sometimes you should just STFU because you don't know what you're talking about.
