Rock Region METRO

Opened 2004, Rock Region METRO's Metro Streetcar consists of two heritage streetcar services that serve the cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock, Arkansas.

METRO Streetcar

METRO Streetcar is a 5.5 km heritage streetcar line on a North-South alignment. It runs from Main St and Bishop Lindsey Avenue in the north to Heifer International in the south via two single direction loops, serving 15 stops. The Green Line only serves the southern loop in Little Rock, while the Blue Line serves all stops. Note that we combined the 3rd St/River Market Avenue stops on this website. The spur to Heifer International is not served in the evening.


METRO Streetcar was opened in November 2004 as the River Rail Streetcar and the last extension to the line was in February 2007 to Heifer Int'l. The METRO Streetcar is owned and operated by Rock Region METRO.
