About the Oklahoma City Streetcar
In 2005, EMBARK’s Board of Trustees approved a regional fixed guideway plan aimed at strengthening community connections, supporting economic growth and developing new mobility options.
As a result, in 2009 Oklahoma City voters said “yes” to a $135-million modern transit initiative to build a modern streetcar system and multimodal transportation hub.
Led by a resident-based committee, the Oklahoma City Streetcar began its planning and design in 2010 and broke ground in February 2017.

A part of EMBARK’s family transit services, the OKC Streetcar has already proven to be an economic catalyst. Within the three-block impact zone around the streetcar route, there has been more than $1.6 billion value in public and private investment since 2011, the year the streetcar route was announced.

With the launch of the OKC Streetcar, EMBARK continues to provide transportation options that connect people with their community, while easing traffic congestion and reducing air pollution.
