KC Streetcar begins passenger service on newest car
The Kansas City Streetcar Authority last week began passenger service on its newest streetcar, marking completion of the authority’s fleet expansion to six streetcars.
The addition of car No. 806 enables the authority to operate four streetcars every Saturday throughout the year. It also allows the authority to perform regular maintenance on the entire fleet, KC Streetcar officials said in a press release.
The authority received two new streetcars, Nos. 805 and 806, earlier this year, nearly two years after the Kansas City Council approved the $9.8 million order from CAF USA Inc., streetcar officials said.
Streetcar No. 805 went into passenger service in the summer.
