STATS REVEAL KANSAS CITY WON'T GIVE UP CARS FOR THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!
The Kansas City transit debate is based mostly on phoney stats touted by cheerleaders. Here's an effort to myth-bust another spurious argument made by toy train cheerleaders . . .
Streetcars (Still) Do Not Reduce Miles Driven In Cars
Money line about tricky ridership stats:
"Kansas City’s population and density are not like the population and density in New York or Dallas. Additionally, Kansas City’s needs are different. We cannot look to New York or Dallas for any meaningful prediction of the impact of rail in Kansas City. The comparisons are absolutely meaningless, to the point of being misleading."
In the end it all boils down to one question: Do you plan to dump your car to ride the toy train for less than 5 blocks???
The answer is fairly obvious to anybody who doesn't have a consulting contract . . .
