It’s getting real!

When Modern Streetcar Advocates was founded in 2017, we hoped by proving there was strong support for the project, that the idea would gain momentum and take off. One by one, people signed up as an advocate right here on this website. More than 1,200 of us attached our name to this project and carried the conversation forward. We’re thrilled that this is no longer just an idea and that this project has real support behind it.

The Omaha Streetcar is now on track to launch in 2026. An Omaha Streetcar Authority (OSA) has been created, and is a public entity created through an interlocal agreement between the City of Omaha and Metro Transit.

Visit the OSA’s website for project updates and more information.

7 Reasons for a Omaha Streetcar

Why We Care About the Streetcar

A streetcar today gets us to an even brighter, bolder future for our city tomorrow.

With a streetcar, we can transform our urban core and strengthen neighborhoods and schools. It can enhance the unique character of midtown and downtown, creating higher density development. And, there are a lot more reasons to explore.

Why We Need A Streetcar
