Modern Streetcar Comes to Downtown at Second Public Open House Aug 23

Posted by Transit Action Network on August 21, 2011

An ameriTram modern streetcar of the type that might one day travel along Main or Grand will be on display at Union Station all day on Tuesday, August 23.

The display is part of the second open house at which the project team will have informational displays inside Union Station and people available to answer questions.  Our understanding is that the consultant team used its connections with the manufacturer to bring the car to Kansas City for display.  We salute the project team for bringing the streetcar here.

7 am to 7 pm – Modern Streetcar Exhibit

8 am to 6:30 pm – Second Public Open House by the Project Team in the Grand Hall

Other activities planned for the day:

11 am to 1 pm – Live Radio Remote
