AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo was invited to be one of the first passengers on Detroit’s New QLINE Streetcar. The project took 10 years to complete from the concept phase to passenger operations. The new QLINE had added $7 billion in development along the Woodward corridor. Each streetcar weighs 87,000 pounds. It can travel up to 30 mph. QLine is powered by a 750 volt lithium ion battery and runs 60 percent off wire–the greatest portion on the United States. Free rides will be offered to everyone for the QLines opening weekend from May 12-14. After that, fares will be $1.50 for a three-hour window, 75 cents for seniors, $3 for an all day pass or $30 for a monthly pass.
