Link hasn’t pulled the plug

On Dec. 19 The World ran a story about Link Transit’s Ultra Fast Charge Electric Trolley Project. While the story was mostly correct, the tone and some of the wording implied that Link Transit was close to abandoning the project and declaring it a failure. That implication is not correct. Link Transit remains fully committed to delivering a successful, serviceable, and cost effective electric trolley project for the citizens of our community, and we fully expect to complete this task in 2013. While it is true that the final delivery of the trolley vehicles is over two years late, and that there have been numerous engineering challenges and delays in our phase one project, our vendor, Ebus of Downey, Calif., has accepted responsibility and has covered the costs that Link Transit has incurred due to their delays. The positive response by Ebus, along with the consistent progress and improvements the project is showing, gives us great confidence that we will eventually have a highly successful advanced technology project for our community.
