This consortium of private and public businesses built a streetcar along Woodward Ave, from Congress to Grand Boulevard (5·3 km, 12 stops) linking with the Amtrak station and the downtown monorail; it opened on 12 May 2017, to be operated by Transdev on a 5 year contract. Brookville supplied six 750V DC/battery LRVs, with trams operating from batteries over 60% of the line.

Formerly known as M-1 Rail or Woodward Ave Streetcar, it was renamed in a commercial naming rights deal in 2016.
