Look, Listen and Live! 

  • Streetcars run in the same travel lanes as other vehicles. Listen for whistles, bells or horns.
  • It is ok to drive on the streetcar tracks. Stay alert!
  • Streetcars cannot stop as quickly as you can. Streetcars traveling at 16 mph take almost 100 feet to stop.
  • Streetcars cannot swerve out of the way of pedestrians, cyclists or vehicles. It is your responsibility to stay out of the streetcar's path.
  • Obey all traffic signs and signals. They are there for your safety, not as an inconvenience.
  • Cross only at designated crosswalks. There are clearly marked signs showing you safe areas to cross the street.
  • Do not cross the street in front of a streetcar. Even if the streetcar is stopped. Wait for the streetcar to pass before you cross.
  • Safety starts with YOU! Report all suspicious packages, activities, and/or persons on the streetcar.
