Like to take a street car from downtown Colorado Springs to UCCS?

The Colorado Springs Streetcar Feasibility Study is exploring the relationship between streetcars and urban development in Colorado Springs by examining the feasibility of implementing a streetcar system for downtown Colorado Springs and surrounding areas along with the associated economic impact.

The feasibility study is being conducted by Mountain Metropolitan Transit. It will recommend alignments and operating and implementation plans, but will be focused on determining if such a system can be funded by the local community.

Two public meetings are planned:
When: Jan. 12, 2010, 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Where: City Administration Building, 30 S. Nevada Ave.
Why: To continue the discussion of potential alignments and vehicle technologies.

When: Jan. 12, 2010, 7:30 to 9 p.m.
Where: City Administration Building, 30 S. Nevada Ave.
Why: To gather public input. Displays will be on exhibit from 7:30 to 8 p.m.; a Streetcar 101 presentation takes place from 8 to 9 p.m.
