    If it was Nov. 11 and not Oct 11 it was a Fed. Holiday. If i misread it than I stand corrected.

    Shouldn't that impact it positively? The whole argument for the street car was for tourists, so numbers should increase on 3 day weekends.
    If street car is for office worker transport, that's a different story. Considering that a loop still takes close to one hour and cars still block the tracks, you really have to decide what your time is worth.
    Make the streetcar free. All the time. Accept that it will always be a loss for the city $ wise, but a boon for tourism. Increase the hotel-motel tax if it gets too dicey with free ride maintenance.
    And don't start with the whole it can't be free cause Embark isn't free. City Link is free and it interfaces with Embark.

    I believe there are legal issues for OKC WRT Embark and the streetcar and equal-type service, or at least the threat of legal issues (couldn't do Sunday service for streetcar unless buses were also expanded to run on Sunday, or else lawsuits would happen). Don't remember the exact details, but they're out there.
