Milwaukee's streetcar, known as 'Tho Hop, is exceeding expectations in terms of daily riders, according to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Milwaukee's newest form of public transportation averaged more than 2,400 daily riders in the month of December.
“I would love to say to you this was exactly what we knew was going to happen,” said Mayor Barrett on Wisconsin's Afternoon News with John Mercure Wednesday. “This is actually better than what we thought.”
The Mayor estimated that they originally expected 1,800 daily riders.
