TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! TYPICALLY CRISP FALL TEMPERATURES SEND KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR RIDERSHIP NUMBERS TUMBLING!!!
Quick word from the weekend and a reality check for take downtown Kansas City transit . . .
THE LATE ARRIVAL OF MORE TRADITIONAL AUTUMN TEMPERATURES HAS CAUSED A DRAMATIC FALL IN TOY TRAIN RYDERS!!!
This chilly morning the streetcar was virtually deserted (again) and Kansas City denizens would OBVIOUSLY rather stay warm and toasty in the car then endure less than ideal weather.
This word from a Downtown Kansas City denizen just came through . . .
"Just wanted to let you know that I work near the streetcar and it's a ghost train over these past few days. I disagree that it's useless because the club chicks during the weekend always provided some nice eye candy but I noticed only a few lonely stragglers over the weekend who clearly didn't realize how quickly it gets cold after dark. They ran outta the streetcar and into P&L and obviously caught an uber back to their cars. It's really not that bad outside. I love the Fall in KC. But don't tell that to the weekend warriors . . ."
Remember that we predicted this fact of life at the end of the Summer.
For the sake of Kansas City and this micro-transit streetcar investment that's nearly a quarter billion dollars . . . We advise Downtown hotties to dress appropriately for the sightly colder weather whilst commuting inside the loop.
