KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Kansas City's first new streetcar has made a successful test tour of downtown.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1Y8QLuu ) the new streetcar made three successful loops of downtown Thursday on its own electrical power.
Streetcar No. 801 is the first of four vehicles that are part of Kansas City's $100 million downtown starter route from River Market to Union Station.
The Streetcar Authority anticipates delivery of the second vehicle in about a month, and the last two vehicles are expected after the beginning of next year. The system is expected to be running as early as next spring.
