Listener Email from Lars

About a year back there was talk of building a light rail public transit system in New Haven. Since then I haven't heard anything about that idea proceeding in New Haven. Is there any chance we might see something like this in Bridgeport? I lived in Germany for a while, and I fell in love with being able to hop on a trolley-type street car and get to where I needed to go. I'm graduating from college this May, and I'd love to stay in CT, but I'm probably going to move someplace that has this type of service. A street car in Bridgeport would be an incentive for me stay in CT and particularly in Bridgeport.
