Thanks to Pat for sending me this article: Seattle has been awarded a federal transit grant that is expected to put the city in a better position to compete for transit dollars in the future. The $900,000 grant from the federal Transit Administration will fund a study of the feasibility of putting a streetcar line through the heart of downtown Seattle.

The line would link the South Lake Union Streetcar with the voter-approved First Hill line, which should be finished in 2013. The Seattle PI has all the details.
