Mayor Mallory in Spain talking with streetcar manufacturers

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Mayor Mark Mallory is in Spain this weekend meeting with CAF, the company that is manufacturing the vehicles for Cincinnati's streetcar system.

Mallory wishes to make sure that both CAF and the city of Cincinnati are in alignment with the project's expectations.

"The Streetcar Project is an important project for Cincinnati, and it is very complex," said Mallory in a press release. "I want to make sure that I clearly communicate my expectations and standards."

During the trip, the Mayor will also be meeting with several government officials including the US Ambassador to Spain and the Mayors of Madrid and Zaragoza. Mallory will talk with several Spanish businesses about potential investment opportunities in Cincinnati.

CAF recently began construction of the five streetcars that will run from The Banks to Findlay Market in the first phase of Cincinnati's streetcar system. In December, CAF and Cincinnati executed a $20.5 million contract to build the vehicles and related spare parts.
