LA Streetcar Project

Los Angeles Streetcar

The Downtown LA Streetcar will be a modern, fixed-rail streetcar that offers new choices for how you connect to downtown’s neighborhoods, restaurants and bars, cultural and entertainment landmarks, and regional transportation resources—including Metro’s growing rail network. The four-mile route will run approximately 18 hours a day to connect riders with places like South Park, the Financial District and Historic Broadway, Grand Park and the Civic Center, the Fashion District, and the Convention Center, Staples Center, and LA Live.

The Los Angeles Streetcar had a busy 2016, with our environmental review, preliminary engineering, and Measure M vote all getting wrapped up and the team preparing next steps in 2017. Below is an outline of our schedule to deliver streetcar service to downtown Los Angeles by 2020.

August 2016: Public-private partnership (P3) financial analysis completed for City by Ernst & Young

November 2016: Final environmental impact report certified by City Council

November 2016: LA Streetcar secures $200 million in funding from Measure M, approved with 71% of the vote

Winter 2016 / 2017: Preliminary engineering (30% design) completed, finalizing updated cost estimate

Mid-2017: Finalize streetcar financial plan; begin procurement process for streetcar vehicles

Mid-2018: Begin streetcar construction

Mid-2020: Complete streetcar construction; begin vehicle and systems testing
