Kind of hard to compare Philly and Portland there. I think portland streetcar is only about 9 miles with the numbers of the 11,000 on average ridership while Philly has close to 80-90 miles of trolley track. So Portland is actually quite high for the small length of their street car system. Not to mention Philly is a lot bigger than Portland.
