Streetcars do more than simply improve mobility. In Kansas City, the entire community is looking to the Downtown Streetcar to fuel economic growth. By promoting development, raising property values, attracting businesses and residents, and helping to redefine our city, streetcars benefit everyone.
Kansas City has more than one billion dollars in economic development underway within the boundaries of the KC Streetcar TDD, or Transportation Development District. As of April, 2016, this includes more than $1.7 billion in development projects completed, in progress or publicly announced since voters approved the streetcar in December 2012.
