The El Paso Streetcar is complete and set to open to the public as early as Friday, November 9, according to City representatives.

After more than two years of work, the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) completed its construction activities on the project and is turning over most communication responsibilities to the City of El Paso. 

Over the past year, four of the six vintage streetcars have arrived to El Paso from Pennsylvania where they have been restored by Brookville Equipment Corporation to include air-conditioning and WiFi. 

The street cars are the same ones that ran on El Paso streets until 1974 and will be operated and serviced by Sun Metro.
 
Each of the six cars are painted in one of three original color schemes representing the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.
 
According to City Rep. Peter Svarzbein, the streetcar will open Friday at  p.m. and will be free every weekend through the rest of the year.
