Kansas City streetcar extensions get green light from City Council

The council voted to pursue the next phase of streetcar extensions beyond the 2-mile downtown starter line. The routes would extend south on Main Street to UMKC and east on Independence Avenue and Linwood Boulevard. The council’s approval paves the way for a court hearing and may set the stage for elections later this year to help pay the cost.
