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.
