If it's only 2.2 miles, it would take very little to maintain frequent service. Assume 4.5 miles round trip including turnarounds at either end.

Even if there is a short layover at either end, 7 streetcars should be enough to maintain 5 minute service.
10 minute frequency at least initially. 18 minute one way trip (including potential traffic delays).
