Village Crosstown Trolley Coalition

Making Tracks through the Village
Greenwich Village, New York City

Help Us Bring Streetcars Back to NYC!

Would you like to have convenient and reliable transportation in Greenwich Village? Do you want to help reduce air pollution from trucks, diesel buses and automobiles? Do you prefer alternatives to the automobile for traveling? Do you favor auto-free space?

We believe that our proposal for a river-to-river light rail transit (LRT) line linking the East Village, West Village and Greenwich Village through the 8th St. Corridor would be beneficial for everyone who lives in, works in or visits Greenwich Village. Please explore our site by clicking on the Destinations at left and find out why you should join us in our cause by becoming a member of VCTC.
