City Council to Replace Tri-Met Buses with Covered Wagons

First came the streetcars - a giant leap back to 1938. Then came the tram. Who knows how far back that technology goes? Humanity has probably been pulling itself in a basket suspended on a rope for hundreds, if not thousands of years. In this retro-loving spirit, the City Council has now decided to replace Tri-Met buses with covered wagons. The wagon trains moving up the former bus mall will add a picturesque touch to the city, with the possibility of becoming a Portland Icon. Here's the first picture from downtown:

I thought it appropriate you used my bus line, the #14 Hawthorne as illustarion. But let's get it right...the people in the wagon would be much more crowded together, standing, with a few hanging off the sides.
