KC Main Street Rail Transportation Development District (TDD)
In spring 2018, voters in the Kansas City Main Street Rail Transportation Development District (TDD) approved the local funding for the Main Street extension of the KC Streetcar to UMKC. The TDD extends from the Missouri River on the north to 53rd Street on the south; State Line Road on the west to Campbell Street on the east.
The Main Street Rail TDD is a separate entity from the Kansas City Streetcar Authority and the City of Kansas City, Missouri. The TDD Board of Directors are authorized to impose the TDD’s revenue sources in the form of a special property assessment and a one percent (1%) sales tax to generate local funding to support the Main Street extension of the KC Streetcar, including operations, maintenance, and debt service on bonds issued by the City to finance the construction of the Streetcar system.
