Now that the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority has extended the M-Line trolley, the streetcar provides a true link between Uptown and Downtown, connecting the entertainment options of the West Village and the office buildings of the Central Business District.
For people who live along the M-Line trolley route, the free streetcars provide the ultimate convenience. They can step out of their front doors and be transported within minutes to the Magnolia movie theater, Klyde Warren Park, or the Dallas Museum of Art, to name just a few destinations.
