A COMMUNITY BASED INVESTMENT IN A MORE CONNECTED LOS ANGELES
The city that grew up around the personal car is becoming more transit-oriented, walkable, and bicycle friendly. The L.A. streetcar is the next step along the path to a more connected, sustainable, and productive Los Angeles.
WHAT IS STREETCAR
The Downtown L.A. Streetcar will be a modern fixed-rail streetcar system - it is NOT a trolley, a cable car, a tram, a bus or a people-mover.
Streetcar will bring together the residential, business, and entertainment districts of Downtown L.A. connecting many of its most popular destinations.
INTEGRATING WITH REGIONAL TRANSIT
Streetcar will connect regional rail and bus lines to job centers and housing, providing a first/last mile solution for a full integrated transit network.
HIGH FREQUENCY TRANSIT
With arrivals every 7 to 10 minutes, Streetcar is always just around the corner, accessible to all that live, work, or play Downtown.
ACCESSIBLE TO ALL
Building a modern system allows the Streetcar to be accessible to wheelchairs, parents with strollers, and cyclists with bikes.
CONNECTS NEIGHBORHOODS AND TRANSIT OPTIONS
The Streetcar will link with regional transit to connect Downtown's many exciting neighborhoods and attractions, including Civic Center, Broadway and the Historic Core, the Fashion District, South Park, L.A. Live and the Convention Center, the Financial District, Restaurant Row and the Jewelry District. Creating a connective transit loop around these districts will benefit local residents, employees of Downtown and those looking to explore the greater community.
PARK ONCE AND GO
Park once, and then roam around Downtown on Streetcar without being tethered to your car.
Streetcar will promote sustainable, walkable, development that emphasizes people over cars.
CREATES A SENSE OF COMMUNITY
The Streetcar will increase walkability around Downtown, further enhancing the pedestrian experience in the area and promoting healthy urban living. The modern system will additionally help replace some of Downtown's noisy congestion with a quiet, clean, aesthetically-pleasing Streetcar.
Streetcar will reduce intermodal conflict and put more eyes on the street, improving safety for all.The Streetcar will also play a key role in rehabilitating under-developed areas, making the area more vibrant and more active, day and night.
