First streetcar vehicle arrives in Cincinnati
Cincinnati on Friday took delivery of its first streetcar vehicle, which arrived from a CAF USA manufacturing plant in Elmira Heights, N.Y.
The streetcar was originally scheduled to arrive Oct. 30, but issues associated with loading it onto a flatbed tractor-trailer delayed it until the afternoon, Cincinnati city officials said in a press release.

Passenger service is scheduled to begin in September 2016.
The project remains on budget, city officials said.
The entire Cincinnati Streetcar will consist of a 3.6-mile loop running through the city's downtown area.
