Week of January 19,  2016 | KC Streetcar Update 

On Monday, the KC Streetcar vehicle #802 under went a full day of testing on Main Street. The remainder of the tests this week will take place at the Kite Singleton Yard and on the "non-revenue' tracks.

Operator training on vehicle #801 started last week and will continue this week in short durations. Once operator training on the vehicle begins full time, the public can expect the streetcars to be making daily trips on Main Street between the hours of 8:00am - 5:00pm, at least.  Operator Vehicle Training may also take place at night and during the weekends.

To date, there are 14 individuals going through streetcar operator orientation and training. KC Streetcar maintenance staff has also been hired and currently being trained. 
The KC Streetcar Authority offers a variety of options and programs for local businesses and corporate partners to take advantage of KC Streetcar’s integration into the city. If you’re interested in KC Streetcar Sponsorship and/or Advertising opportunities, please click here for the KC Streetcar Sponsorship Program Request for Proposals. All proposals are due back to the KC Streetcar Authority by 5:00pm on January 29, 2015.
