LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — Rock Region Metro announced Wednesday that it's eliminating the $1 fare for streetcar rides in 2019.
It's the second time the transportation authority has made streetcar service free in recent years. Rock Region Metro eliminated fares for seven months in 2017. It reported that ridership increased more than 30 percent in that period.
The streetcar operates on two routes through the Little Rock and North Little Rock downtown areas.
