This two-mile north-south streetcar starter line will run through downtown, connecting the River Market on the north to Union Station and Crown Center on the south. The modern, electric streetcar vehicles will operate within existing street lanes with stops occurring approximately every two blocks. Confluence has collaborated with the design team to develop prototype design options for station/platform design and integrate them into the surrounding urban setting. On Thursday, August 1, the Kansas City Streetcar Authority approved the final design for streetcar stops and platforms.
The streetcar is scheduled to become operational in the summer of 2015.
