Ride KC

The Spine of KC’s Regional Transit System


The Downtown KC Streetcar line, or “starter line”, is the beginning of a comprehensive streetcar system for the Kansas City Region. The KC Streetcar runs through the heart of downtown and connects to Ride KC buses at either various points on the route.


The Downtown KC Streetcar starter line is the first step in a longer-range plan to create a regional, integrated transit system to uniquely connect the Greater Kansas City area like never before. Progressive regions with streetcar systems have seen significant economic growth and the Downtown KC Streetcar starter line is a step in effort to realize an even more vibrant, vital and livable urban center. Streetcar systems attract new residents, businesses and workforce and provide an improved and more efficient travel option. The downtown KC Streetcar starter line has proven to bring new investment and increased property values to downtown along with an increased economic impact.
