First of five Milwaukee streetcars set to arrive this month

All five streetcars are expected to be in service by November of this year

March 20, 2018

The first Milwaukee streetcar is scheduled to arrive in the city on March 26.

On Friday, city leaders met to talk about updates on the project. Once the first car arrives, the four others will come to Milwaukee on a monthly basis.

When the first streetcar arrives, it will undergo testing inside a city facility for around two weeks. After that, the streetcar will be put on the tracks for test runs.

Local officials told local news sources that around nine supervisor jobs have already been posted. They expect to begin the hiring process for streetcar operators by the end of April. All five cars are scheduled to be in service in November.
