Kansas City Street Car

Streetcar FAQs Can I park on the streetcar route? Yes. The City of Kansas City, Missouri, and the KC Streetcar Authority have preserved parking along the streetcar route as per priorities set forth by those adjacent properties. Parking on Main Street was a priority for the properties on the route and the City has recently widened some spaces as a result of public opinion. The parallel space widths were set based on the available width between the face of the curb and the dynamic envelope of the streetcar. Because the rail alignment and the curb lines aren’t parallel throughout the alignment, those widths vary. Widths are more uniform elsewhere in the city, but we have to be flexible to safely accommodate motorists and the streetcar on Main Street. The varied parking widths are an attempt to preserve as much parking for businesses as possible. The alternate approach would be to set an arbitrary parking width requirement and eliminate any areas of parking that did not meet that width. We chose to listen to the businesses and preserve as much parking as we could. How wide are the parking spaces along the streetcar route?

The KC Streetcar is free to ride, which means there is no fare to ride on the streetcar as it travels the 2 miles through the heart of downtown. Can I bring my dog (or animal) onto the streetcar? Service animals are permitted on the KC Streetcar as well as dogs that are within a small carrier. How fast will the Streetcar travel? It will run with traffic, so it will travel at traffic speeds. Streetcar vehicles are capable of traveling at speeds up to at least 45 miles per hour. It is unlikely the streetcar will reach those speeds in the Downtown environment. Can I bring my bicycle on the streetcar? Bicycles, wheelchairs and strollers (and other wheeled vehicles) are able to board and disembark from the middle car. More FAQs
