Because putting empty streetcars onto busy streets will help.
A.) Streetcars are for tourists (who walk in Charleston).
B.) Nobody will drive to the peninsula, wait on a rail/trolly, just to be dropped off 6 blocks from their destination in 97F heat.

Tim Scott responded to the “F” grade that the NAACP gave him on its legislative scorecard.
“Well, let’s just ask ourselves if we look back over history when the Congress was controlled by the Democrats for 40 consecutive years.

Absolute garbage "journalism." Chris Haire would be swooning all over Tim Scott right now if it were Tim Scott (D). Total bias, total bull shit, and total garbage.
Bureaucrat's dream come true! Screw up, resign, get paid for more than a year to do nothing at all. Total B.S. And I'm sure she'll be hired somewhere else and do the same thing all over again.
