The Downtown Kansas City Streetcar project is a starter rail line for a regional transit system. The approved 2-mile Main Street alignment (River Market to Crown Center) is adjacent to downtown’s residential and job density, as well as all major investments. Previous plans failed for being too expensive or too complicated; this plan is focused where support is strong and innovative local funding can be leveraged with Federal money. A sleek and modern streetcar on rails has proven potential to take downtown to the next level… for residents, businesses, and visitors alike. Won’t you come along for the ride?
