Democracy at its best! Keep voting on it until we get it right.

If there is an expansion; let’s make sure the tourist that use it, pay for it. KCMO taxpayers are already overburden.

The streetcar was started out free to try to make believe there was a need for it by encouraging riders.
The financial performance was of no consequence to the gimlet-eyed transit boosters.
Any expansion will also be free.
And if any fares are ever contemplated, it would require additional cost and the ridership would immediately tank.
Dr.Frankenstein would be proud.

Yep, sounds like the anti streetcar movement has been decapitated

"If the court approves the district’s creation, up to three different special elections (two of them mail-in) would be required. That process could extend into August 2017. If voters within the taxing district approve the new boundaries and the taxes, and the necessary federal funds also materialize, the expanded streetcar system could open in 2022."

Another gerrymandered election.

This plan is definitely prejudiced. It does not help or include anything or anyone on the Eastside of the city. It is racist and discriminatory! Stop it now!

@9:36 You're fucking kidding, right? You do know the east side was included in the last proposal and it failed because the east side voted it down (unlike the midtown corridor, which voted in favor)? Are you being sarcastically humorous, or are you a misinformed idiot who comments on things you don't bother to learn about, or are you just so vehemently opposed to this project that you'd say anything in opposition even over your contrary knowledge?
