The KC Streetcar is for everyone.

Accessibility

Along with the KCATA, the Kansas City Streetcar Authority’s primary goal is to unify KC metro through a multi-modal transportation system. Included in this long-term strategic vision is the expansion of paratransit services.

 

Level Boarding

The KC Streetcar offers 100% level boarding at all of its stops.  This means that we are wheelchair, bike, stroller and “anything with wheels” friendly. Those looking for level boarding should board at the middle doors of the streetcar.

 

Free to Ride

The KC Streetcar is free to ride from Union Station to the River Market and all the stops along the way.

 

Shared Stops

The KC Streetcar stops also share stops with B-cycle transit. At Union Station; Metro Stop (10th & Main); and River Market North (3rd & Grand) riders can rent a bicycle when they disembark from the KC Streetcar OR ride a B-cycle to one of those locations and hop on the KC Streetcar.

 

The Bus Bridge

In the event of a service outage of any given length, the KC Streetcar Authority along with RideKC Transit (KCATA) will provide auxiliary bus services to riders within the service area of the streetcar free of charge. It is our goal to always provide seamless and available service to RideKC passengers regardless of any challenges.
