  • Keep a safe distance from the streetcars.
  • Do not walk or play on tracks.
  • Bicyclists should use caution when riding near the tracks and should cross at a 90 degree angle.
  • Motorists should check for approaching streetcars before opening vehicle doors.
  • Motorists are also reminded that vehicles along the streetcar route need to be parked fully within the white lines of the parking spaces, and that double-parking is not allowed. Illegally parked vehicles along the route will be ticketed and/or towed
