The Charlotte Streetcar Project is a key recommendation of the 2025 Corridor System Plan. The alignment will serve the central business district (CBD) and provide connectivity to surrounding communities and institutions. The proposed streetcar line will run 10 miles along Beatties Ford Road near I-85 through the CBD along Trade Street, traveling up Elizabeth Avenue by Central Piedmont Community College and out to Central Avenue at Eastland Mall.
The streetcar is also a key component to implementing the Center City 2010 Vision Plan, helping to create "a livable and memorable Center City." Further, the streetcar will be critical in creating a transit focused and pedestrian oriented center city through developing an integrated transportation system of pedestrians, bikes, motor vehicles, transit, parking, and land development.
More information on the Streetcar Project can be found on the City of Charlotte Streetcar page.
