LA Streetcar: Ready to Connect Now
Over the past 15 years, Downtown Los Angeles has experienced a tremendous revitalization with a quadrupled resident population, significant employment growth, new commercial and residential developments, and a celebrated tourism, cultural, restaurant, and nightlife scene.
But the need for greater connectivity and continued revitalization is clear.
The LA Streetcar supports this vision by improving connections Downtown and to the regional transit network, bringing new life to under-invested areas, generating jobs, increasing safety, and ultimately preparing Downtown for the future.
Los Angeles shouldn’t have to wait any longer to enjoy the benefits of an interconnected transit system and the economic development that results from it.
LA Streetcar is a modern and sustainable urban circulator that was designed to meet the needs of Downtown’s residents, commuters, and tourists. The 3.8-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. It will also serve as a much-need connector to key local and regional bus and rail lines, serving as the first/last mile solution needed to bridge the gaps in Downtown’s existing public transportation system.
LA Streetcar will be the most frequent streetcar service in the entire country, with 7-minute headways during peak hours and frequencies of 10 to 15 minutes during off-hours. With easy and accessible boarding, the LA Streetcar will offer an equitable form of transportation for residents and visitors alike, and will catalyze additional commercial and residential development in the city’s most urban, transit-accessible core.
