Kansas City Light Rail Vote Vs. Streetcar Toy Train Extension Enthusiasts: Activist Clay Chastain Rages Against Critics!!!
Recently . . . We noted the streetcar deriding the Clay Chastain light rail plan.
In fairness, here's the response from the only Kansas City activist to win a citywide transit vote in the modern era.
Take a look:
Clay Chastain: Hypocritical Regional Transit Alliance (RTA) Board comes out against Light Rail Question #3.
How is it a transit board (RTA) can come out against a ballot initiative (Light Rail Question #3) that seeks to make innovative and significant improvements to the city's out-dated, unpopular and ineffective transit system when their own misssion statement says its goal is to support improvements and enhancements to public transportation?
And, how is it that same RTA advocacy group can support the city's downtown streetcar line for tourists that does not significantly improve or enhance the city's public transportation system?
This only proves that the RTA is more of a political-oriented group (controlled by the city) than a transit-oriented organization for the people.
Vote Yes for Light Rail Question #3 if you want to shake this city up and provide the people a more green, prosperous and transit-oriented city.

Engineer and the leader of people's Light Rail Question #3.
