Subsidies, not streetcars are what attracts development.

Why would developers turn down developing Main St. Union Station to UMKC if the city just gave them the $250 million of taxpayer money as incentives the streetcar extension is low ball estimated? Because a streetcar wouldn't come with the deal?

The Main St. bus system is perfectly fine.

Lyin' Hillys of KC, with their pay to play/scheming/scamming/money-grabbing. They hand over many million$ of taxpayers' dollars to select 1%er friends (uh, friends while the cash is flowing).

Yeah, there's development alright, and it's carrying yuuuuge debt. Schools, streets, safety issues, and much more are secondary and falling lower in priorities for fixing and funding.

The only development is gonna be a train full of stinky coons. At least visitor to the city will be able to witness yard apes in their natural habitat.
