The M-1 RAIL Streetcar system is currently under construction on Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. It is the first major public transit project led and funded by private businesses and philanthropic organizations, in partnership with local, state and federal governments.
The streetcar will travel north and south on both sides of Woodward Avenue for 3.3 miles (6.6 miles round-trip) when complete in late 2016. The streetcar will serve Detroit’s largest job centers and most visited destinations. It will provide a foundation for improved and expanded public transit throughout the region and ignite tremendous new growth and job creation. The streetcar system will include 20 stations (16 curbside and 4 median running) at 12 locations.
