Running from the River Market on the north end to Union Station and Crown Center on the south, KC Streetcar connects all the downtown neighborhoods with 16 platform stops and 2 miles of track. Shop local produce, couture, antiques and KC memorabilia; drop the commute between work and home; enjoy the culture of art galleries, events, concerts and plays; satisfy your hunger/thirst/cravings with a variety of culinary offerings … it’s all part of a normal day in downtown Kansas City!
With streetcars arriving approximately every 10- 15 minutes during peak hours and fare-free, visitors and residents alike can easily explore Kansas City on their schedule using the Route Map and at-platform signage. Ample parking along the route is available. Drive on over then let the KC Streetcar take you from there. And with long service hours (especially on the weekends) you never have to worry about missing the fun OR the last streetcar back.
Our downtown line is the first step in a regional, integrated transit system connecting the greater metropolitan area. Public transportation creates more vibrant, livable urban centers by attracting new residents and new jobs – which lead to significant economic growth and large investments encouraging even development! With more than $1.8 billion invested in downtown Kansas City already, the boundaries are limitless. Not to mention, KC Streetcar is fun and easy to ride!
With approximately 12,486 publicly accessible off-street spaces, designated spots along the route, and good ol’ fashion street parking, visitors won’t lose any time finding a place to park after arriving downtown.

Parking along the streetcar route is allowed in designated areas within the painted white lines. Keep the KC Streetcar running without interference by ensuring every portion of your vehicle including side mirrors, is safely inside the painted white lines. Hopefully this goes without saying, but parking on the KC Streetcar tracks is a big no-no. KCPD Parking Enforcement will ticket, fine and tow vehicles as needed per City Ordinance #105406.
