MovieFilter: Transportation planner looses his job. He ends up pitching his plan and gets his job and girlfriend back.

I'm looking for a movie I saw in the late 80s or early 90s. I think it was the story of a transportation planner who had a plan for a city transit system. Somehow he ends up fired and looses his girlfriend. I remember him kicking around his messy apartment for weeks on end and that he had a model of his train proposal there. Somehow he ends up making his pitch, and gets his job and girlfriend back. May have been set in NYC.

Any ideas?

Singles, Seattle, and not the only plot thread, but (semi?) notable for the guys from Pearl Jam playing Matt Dillon's band...
