Mission

The Community Streetcar Coalition supports the advancement of streetcars as part of the expansion of mobility options, building livable communities and the growth and empowerment of its members.

Advancement of the Mission

The Coalition does so through engaging in local and federal advocacy, sharing information, providing technical support through peer exchanges in the United States and Canada, and promoting the value of streetcars.

Who we are

The Coalition is comprised of more than seventy local governments, transit agencies, architectural and engineering firms, rail car manufacturers, advocacy groups, community coalitions and other private sector firms.

2022 Streetcar Summit in Milwaukee

The 11th Annual Streetcar Summit was held May 16-18, 2022 at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The streetcar community gathered to discuss topics ranging from project updates to the increasing cost of construction, as well as equity and advertising. Presentation materials, videos, and the Summit Book may be viewed in the archive.
