Streetcar to Fort Mason and front steps of Marina

Good news - the National Park Service has released its draft environmental report on extending the historic streetcar line from Fishermen's Wharf to Fort Mason, through the historic one track  tunnel. The good news is that it will get a push since the America's Cup is coming SOON, and new District 2 Supervisor Farrell supports it to Fort Mason.

Less clear is how much locals in Marina, with homeowners on Marina Boulevard being the most vocal, will try to block this for fear of a some day MAYBE in the future further extension into the Marina and maybe to the Presidio. Look at extensive comments on the linked Market Street Railway blog for details on that.
