Word On Kansas City Streetcar Delivery Could Come This Week
Kansas City could get more information on when its new streetcars will be delivered as early as Tuesday.
Tom Gerend, executive director of the Streetcar Authority and City Engineer Ralph Davis are in Elmira, New York at facilities of CAF U.S.A on what would be a routine progress visit – except the first streetcar was due in June. All four were supposed to be delivered by this month.
The Streetcar Authority Board meets on Thursday and Davis and Gerund hope to be able to report on whether the streetcar line can open in time for the Big-12 tournament as planned.
Kansas City Communications Director Chris Hernandez promises quick communication with the public and the media via social media and e-mail when the officials learn any new information about the delivery delays.
