The St. Charles City Streetcar is a proposed new heritage streetcar line to be built connecting the New Town, Missouri residential development to the nearby city of St. Charles. This is a joint effort between Whittaker Builders, Inc, and the City of St. Charles and St. Charles Area Transit. A minimum of nine vintage PCC streetcars have been purchased from the San Francisco area by Whittaker Builders for use and spare parts (not to be confused with cable cars).

Route description[edit]

The route will have a trackage of 8-mile (13 km) from the new urban development New Town St. Charles to the Missouri riverfront area and the historic main street of St. Charles, Missouri. It will connect up to five major stops including the St. Charles Convention Center and the Family Arena venue.
