Pedestrian Safety

Be aware of your surroundings when walking and always proceed with caution when interacting with the streetcar.

  • Never cross or run in front of an approaching streetcar or between two stopped vehicles.
  • Wait until traffic has stopped before crossing and only cross at designated crosswalks. Never assume a driver sees you.
  • Be aware of your environment and recognize that the streetcar is operating in mixed traffic.
