Streetcars Could be coming to Downtown and the Central West End

512bdb92199fd.preview-620As reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch a public meeting will be held at the Moto Museum to discuss the possibility of building a streetcar line that would run from the Central West End to Downtown St. Louis, with an additional line that would include North St. Louis along Florissant Ave. A feasibility study has already been conducted and leaders are hoping to conduct an environmental impact study soon. The line would run mainly along Olive and would link Downtown, Midtown, and the Central West End and could spur development along the fixed track lines. The line along Florissant could help to rebuild the once vibrant area – along with Paul McKee’s Northside Regeneration plan. Studies in other parts of the country have indicated that property values along trolley lines can increase as a result of the investment.


Street Cars Could Generate $2 Billion in Economic Development to St. Louis

A similar line will be built along the Delmar Loop in University City and St. Louis City.
