Several notes of interest:
- The FTA has approved the Project Development Application for the Streetcar Loop in record time. That means the race is now on to assemble the local match by August.
- The 3 new Czech cars have finished their burn-in mileage and are just waiting for final safety paperwork to clear (back in Prague) before they go into service.
- The Lowell extension is on schedule and opening ceremonies are planned for August 17th/18th.
- A regional Streetcar conference will be held in Portland this summer.
That’s what I call momentum…
