 Streetcar Subcommittee

Mission Statement

The Streetcar Sub Committee promotes services in the urban centers and serves as a forum for the exchange of information among individuals and organizations in promoting, planning, funding, designing, building, operating and maintenance of such services. It also plays a key role in the development of technical standards and by providing guidance to regulators in setting sensible and reasonable regulatory measures.

Current Issues

  • A revision is in process to the APTA Standard on Vintage/Heritage Trolley Vehicle Equipment (Document # APTA RT-SC-S-001-05 Rev1)

Future Meetings

  •  Wednesday March 29, 2017 in Cincinnati, OH.
  • Advance Information: APTA and TRB will be jointly sponsoring the 14th National LRT & Streetcar Conference. Meeting dates have not yet been set - but tentative planning looks like it will be at the end of October 2018 in Jersey City. More information will be provided.
