Kansas Citys streetcar vehicle delivery delay will not be as bad as city officials had feared, but they still cant guarantee the system will be up and running with passengers in time for March Madness at the Sprint Center.

..

The manufacturer, CAF USA, had told the city in July that the delivery date might be as late as mid-December, which raised the possibility that the streetcars might not be fully tested and operational for the Big 12 conference mens basketball tournament.

..

But delivery of the first of four vehicles is now expected in Kansas City by Oct. 29, Deputy Public Works Director Ralph Davis said Thursday.

..

Davis traveled to Elmira, N.Y., earlier this week to meet with CAF USA officials and see the streetcars as they were being custom built. He pressed the manufacturer to speed up the assembly line process and to make sure the vehicles get delivered more quickly.

..

He told the Kansas City Streetcar Authority and the City Council on Thursday that he was pleased with that progress.

..

Weve got a significant four-week savings on the schedule, he said.

..

But Davis added that hes still not satisfied with CAFs proposed delivery dates for the other three vehicles which he declined to specify and said hell keep pushing them to accelerate the pace.

..

He admitted he doesnt know when the system might be ready for public use.

..

The actual start of operation is the hardest question to answer because it has the most variables, he told the council. Theres a lot of wildcards.

..

Davis continued to emphasize that his top priority is a safe, highly functioning system rather than meeting an artificial start date.

..

The vehicle delivery schedule is important because Mayor Sly James has said the new streetcar system should be running in time to carry the crowds that will descend on downtown for the March 9 start of the Big 12 conference mens basketball tournament.
