Each individual partner is investing in the future of Center City – from expanded light rail, streetcar, and bus service to improved parks and public spaces.

By working together in a unique partnership, we can maximize the benefit of these investments, provide a seamless, well-connected, and easy-to-use transportation system, and provide public spaces that are safe, accessible, and inviting.

The One Center City Partners will work closely with other local agencies, the Advisory Group, and the public to seek input and ideas and make sure we’re on the right track.
