Kansas City Streetcar
Downtown Streetcar Moves Forward
Kansas City's Downtown Streetcar is moving full speed ahead. The two-mile line will run largely on Main Street from the River Market to Union Station. The streetcar will run in existing street lanes, just like other vehicles. The streetcar route will include 18 stops, spaced roughly two blocks apart. Construction of the line and stops will be completed two to three blocks at a time, and opening day is expected in mid-2015. Utility investigations started, and construction is expected to begin this summer. KCATA serves as a technical adviser for the city's compliance with Federal Transit Administration criteria and guidelines, and to the streetcar authority.
