This weekend San Antonio votes on whether or not they should vote. 

After a multi-year plan to bring streetcar to San Antonio imploded, and a successful push by anti-streetcar advocates last year, a charter amendment was put on the ballot that--if passed--would require a vote by the people to approve any project dealing with light rail or streetcar.

How did we get here? What is the future of mass transit in San Antonio?
