On occasion, special events or other activities may desire to either extend the streetcar service hours beyond the adopted schedule or add additional vehicles to existing service to support anticipated demand. This additional vehicle can not be reserved for a private group or event. This streetcar service policy prepared by the Kansas City Streetcar Authority (KCSA) outlines the costs and fees associated with service additions, the process for requesting increases in service, and the process the KCSA will use in making a final determination.
The KC Streetcar System runs on a fixed operating schedule, seven days a week. The operating schedule and vehicle usage plan is outlined below.
The costs associated with an extension of service and/or additional of a streetcar vehicle is as follows:
$150 per streetcar / per hour (2016 rate)
Ex. Extending Sunday Service to midnight with two streetcars (2 cars x 2 hours = $600)
$40 per staff hour / security support (2016 Rate)
Please send requests for service additions to email@example.com 30 days in advance of the requested date, and include the following information:
Upon receipt of a special event service request, KCSA will initiate an internal review and respond to the applicant within five (5) business days regarding the conclusion of the review. KCSA’s review will include an evaluation of anticipated staff and fleet availability, event logistics, safety needs, and associated estimated total costs.
Upon receiving written approval of the request, applicants are required to submit payment of related fees in full two business days prior to the scheduled event. Make checks payable to Kansas City Streetcar Authority.
If payment is not received, KCSA reserves the right to return to the scheduled operations service plan.
KCSA will hold the check until after the planned evented date, and will only cash the check if requested service was provided.
It is possible that unforeseen events on the day of the requested service impact the ability to provide the supplemental service as requested. Examples of these unforeseen events include but are not limited to vehicle maintenance needs, inclement weather, medical emergencies, adjacent construction, traffic incidents, etc. The KCSA reserves the right to cancel or alter service requests at any time based on unforeseen events, the day-to-day conditions of the alignment, and the safety of the overall system.
