TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR MOSTLY FOR WEEKENDS, SO FIX THE SCHEDULE TO SAVE CASH!!!
Despite the social media, instagramz and sponsored tweets of Kansas City transit cheerleaders . . . It seems the streetcar is nothing more than "touristy frou-frou" which is what most critics predicted. Still, the thing costs money and as the Summer comes to a (violent) conclusion, there's concern about cost that continues to ramp up despite hyped up numbers which tout ridership without providing context.
Here's the word and something to consider for Sunday that contradicts so many consultants and soulless newsies paid to tout the project . . .
TKC READER SUGGESTION: "I live in River Market and see the streetcars daily. There are very few riders on the weekdays; the cars are almost empty. This applies to morning, afternoons, and evening. There are riders on the weekends. The management needs to adjust their operating schedule to meet the demand. I would think this would suggest that weekday service be discontinued and service offered only on the weekends. The resulting savings passed on to the taxpayers in the transportation district."
