SURPRISE!!! TOY TRAIN STREETCAR TAKES CASH FROM KANSAS CITY'S BUS SYSTEM!!!
It's not exactly news to ANYBODY who considers the reality of paying more than $100 mil for a bit of "transit" that only travels about 2 miles.
Kansas City's latest budget plan would divert $2 million away from ATA toward downtown project. Now it's clear where that money is likely to come from: The bus system.
Interesting . . . Never mind AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS said pretty much the same thing last month.
Even better . . .
IT'S NICE THAT DEAD TREE MEDIA IS FINALLY STARTING TO INVESTIGATE A BUDGET THE CITY MANAGER CALLS "STRUCTURALLY UNBALANCED" AND OBVIOUSLY SYMPTOMATIC OF KANSAS CITY'S SCREWED UP PRIORITIES UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF MAYOR SLY AND CITY COUNCIL!!!
In other words . . . The Toy Train isn't transit . . . It's an eco-devo pipe dream that actually takes cash away from REAL transit options on which po'folk rely.
