TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY TOURISTS DISAPPOINTED WITH BORING BUS RIDES WHEN TOY TRAIN STREETCAR REPEATEDLY BREAKS DOWN!!!
Kansas City tourism officials claim that our quiet little cowtown hosts 24 million visitors every year and right now our blog community considers word back from more than a few of these folks who have expressed disappointment with the unreliable toy train streetcar line which has ruined their visit.
To wit . . .
TRENDING IN KANSAS CITY: WHEN THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR BREAKS DOWN (WHICH IS OFTEN) TOURISTS ARE BUMMED BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO TAKE THE BUS INSTEAD!!!
One bit of testimony out of many . . .
"Your streetcar line doesn't work Tony. Hate to say it but my visit to KC was completely ruined when my sister, who lives out of town, and I planned our trip at Crown Center, walked to Union Station and spent 20 minutes waiting for the streetcar that was just sitting there inactive. A bus finally came along and we were able to ride for free on the same route but it was really disappointing because we planned to spend the afternoon on the streetcar. I might have time later this year before it gets cold to go again but I really hope it becomes more reliable because I don't visit Downtown often and the streetcar was the whole reason for the trip. I can take the bus any time."
On the bright side, streetcar supporters should be thankful that their transit is at least working to attract an occasional tourist.
But really . . .
TOY TRAIN BREAKDOWNS ARE BECOMING SO COMMONPLACE THAT MSM HAS STOPPED REPORTING THE OUTAGES AS THE MUCH MORE RELIABLE BUS WORKS TO MAINTAIN THE TOY TRAIN LINE!!!
Either way, our blog community is looking toward the future as more ride-sharing options and self-driving buses are soon to be the new hotness.
Mashable recently notes why the streetcar will soon be obsolete: Get on board: Australia has just launched its first driverless bus
New York Times: Alphabet Expands Car-Pooling Project, Casting Shadow on Uber
The tragic part of this equation is that streetcar advocates earn media accolades with their rigged ridership numbers whilst an accurate count of breakdowns and outages in not maintained or shared with the public but will hopefully see the light of day after our TKC EXCLUSIVE SATURDAY JOURNALISM DOWNTOWN STREETCAR BREAKDOWN EXPOSÉ . . .
