The Kansas City street car is experiencing problems already.
The car took it's first run earlier this month. It's been on our radar because the city's street car system looks pretty similar to the one coming to Milwaukee and Milwaukee city officials have said they are looking to that city as an example.
The street car suddenly stopped Monday night because of a track switching issue and the city had to stop service altogether while they figured out the problem.
Passengers were taken away by bus.
The street car was running once again Monday evening, but it's not a good sign for the newly installed project, and this morning, you can bet Milwaukee city officials want to know more about what exactly happened, too.
