Ride The Current


It turns out the KC Streetcar does look good in teal.

On Friday, November 19, the KC Streetcar Authority and Kansas City Current unveiled the latest streetcar wrap design. This new streetcar design captures everything that is exciting about the Kansas City Current: the new name and crest, the teal, the energy, and, of course, the current. Special guests included Kansas City Current midfielder Lo’eau LaBonta and forward Jaycie Johnson, as well as Mayor Quinton Lucas.

Season ticket members who attended the unveiling took photos with the KC Current Streetcar. Following the unveiling, season ticket members rode the KC Current Streetcar to the new KC Current Power & Light Streetcar Stop and headed to Rally House for a meet & greet event with KC Current’s LaBonta and Johnson.

“We are proud to partner with the Kansas City Current as they make their mark in Kansas City. What they are doing for women’s sports is astronomical and we are excited to take this ride with them,” said Donna Mandelbaum, communications and marketing director with the KC Streetcar Authority.

In a few years, the Kansas City Streetcar will serve the new Kansas City Current soccer stadium when the Streetcar Riverfront Extension is complete. This will directly link Berkley Riverfront Park with downtown, midtown and the Country Club Plaza, increasing rider connectivity to businesses, residences, schools, cultural institutions, and more.
