River Rail Streetcar Project History
Phase I of the River Rail Streetcar Line began revenue operation on November 1, 2004. Three replica vintage trolleys operate on the 2.5-mile route linking some of the most vibrant destinations in the River Cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock. The streetcars operate on an overhead power supply and travel across the Main Street Bridge over the Arkansas River to connect the two cities. Passengers not only have great views of the river and the Little Rock skyline, but are quick to spot the U.S.S. Razorback, a World War II submarine now owned by the City of North Little Rock and anchored on the river's north shore. In its first year of operation, River Rail carried 200,000 passengers
