How much will the streetcar project cost and what are the funding sources?


A 2017 independent cost estimate anticipates a total project cost of $290.7 million including finance charges or $274.2 million excluding finance charges.  The streetcar currently has dedicated capital funding from a local Community Facilities District (CFD) and 30 years of operational funding approved by City Council. The City is seeking additional funding through the Federal Small Starts Grant program, Metro’s Measure M, and public-private partnership (P3) opportunities.
