TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There is no firm date for the first streetcar to arrive in Tucson even though most of the track work is completed.

City officials told Tucson News Now the first car is still being worked on and has not left Portland yet.

The first car was scheduled to arrive in early spring but that was pushed back to the middle of August..

According to the contract, all eight cars ordered by the city must be track-ready before the streetcar can operate.

The project is nearly a year behind schedule.
