How to Ride the Streetcar
METRO Streetcar operates on two routes throughout the Little Rock and North Little Rock downtown areas seven days a week, except for New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. The easiest way to remember the different routes is to remember blue for water: The Blue Line is the route that operates throughout Little Rock and crosses the Arkansas River (the water) to North Little Rock. The Green Line stays in Little Rock. The Green Line does not operate on Sundays, and service to the popular Clinton Presidential Center and Heifer International stop ends every day around 5:35 p.m.
