American-made streetcars bring a new, Made in the USA option to public transportation
At ManufactureThis we've highlighted, several times, the work of Portland, Oregon's United Streetcar.
We're big fans of this company because it brought manufacturing of streetcars back to the United States, after a more than 50-year hiatus. This means that cities and towns looking to add streetcars to public transportation now have an American-made option.
As such, the city of Tuscon, Arizona purchased an American-made United Streetcar, and earlier this month the town received its new piece of machinery.
