The agreement and the delivery of the first vehicle signify the transition of the KC Streetcar project from construction to the operations and testing phase. HTSI has a general manager, director of maintenance and a director of safety and security already on-board supporting the start-up process. Passenger streetcar service will start in 2016.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be moving into the operational phase of this project”, said KCSA Executive Director Tom Gerend. “This agreement solidifies our long-term partnership with Herzog and ensures our ability to bring national expertise and capacity to our operations and maintenance responsibilities.”
