Riverside Streetcar Study to Give Update
Riverside, CA. – The Riverside Reconnects Streetcar Feasibility Study, which is examining what a streetcar system could mean for Riverside, will be the subject of a community update and question/answer session at a workshop Thursday (7/31) evening.
The workshop is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the César Chávez Community Center, 2060 University Avenue. City staff members and members of the consulting team who are working on the study will present an update, answer questions and obtain community feedback.
