actually, ridership on kenosha's streetcar is closer to 175 people per day.
but the kenosha city council has voted to provide funds to expand the system beyond its current 2 mile downtown loop, so if they get a real line or two connecting the downtown to the neighborhoods, it might actually be useful as real transportation.
in any event, even if there were thousands of people riding it everyday, including kenosha's streetcar number into a chicagoland rail ridership total would be pretty silly in my opinion.
