The City of Winston-Salem is considering the possibility of implementing an urban circulator, possibly a streetcar or enhanced bus service, connecting Downtown and surrounding neighborhoods to each other and the region.
About the Urban Circulator Study
In 2006, the Winston-Salem Streetcar Feasibility Study established the concept for a streetcar route through the urban core, but a more detailed evaluation of an urban circulator (bus or rail) is needed. The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate options for an urban circulator, and to select a preferred alternative.

What Could an Urban Circulator Look Like?
- Rubber-tire bus or rail vehicles
- An old-fashioned trolley or streetcar
- A more modern-looking, sleek vehicle
- Color scheme would be compatible with WSTA or other destination characteristics
