TKC EXCLUSIVE!! DID ERNEST T. BASS THROW A ROCK AT THE DOWNTOWN TOY TRAIN AMID HEART BREAK OVER STREETCAR PROMISES BETRAYED?!?



Ernest T. Bass was a notorious criminal who was the scourge of the streets of Mayberry. And while Mr. Bass might be indistinguishable from so many other violent and dangerous hobos who occupy the streets of Downtown Kansas City . . . It seems that this iconic villain might have set his sights on the streetcar.

Why??

THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR CONTINUES TO DISAPPOINT AND HASN'T DELIVERED ON SO MANY BIG PROMISES!!!



First and foremost . . .

Ridership Decline After Initial Hype


This morning we just got a note that there were a grand total of 6 people riding one local streetcar during rush hour. Overall, toy train ridership has suffered A DRAMATIC DECLINE in riders by their own count and since the media blitz upon its grand opening.

But it gets worse . . .

The Streetcar Kills City Market Biz With Horrible Parking Problems


Documented by local news and even addressed by City Hall . . . The City Market area has taken a horrific hit from confusing rules and reg and the eternal right of way for this mode of transit that hasn't delivered more biz but instead impedes loyal customers.

The Streetcars Are Euro-Trash Lemons


Constant break downs, always late and mostly undependable . . . The streetcar is old tech that has a lot of problems that local news only report by way of constant rider alerts on continued breakdowns.

Finally . . . It gets worse . . .



The most troubling aspect of the streetcar has been the corruption of local Democracy wherein consultants were allowed to rig votes and create what critics call "The most corrupt election since the Pendergast era" with a few legal maneuvers and the same kind of private ballots that were the hallmark of Jim Crow segregation. Fact is: When more people get to vote on the streetcar, it is ALWAYS defeated.

TKC EXCLUSIVE: THERE'S AN UPCOMING MOVE FROM THE COUNCIL TO SHUT DOWN THE UPCOMING PRIVATE VOTE ON STREETCAR EXPANSION IN MUCH THE SAME WAY THAT CLAY CHASTAIN'S BALLOT EFFORTS ARE ALWAYS DENIED!!!

Sadly, all of this is defended by the current administration as part of an EPIC slate of 2017 tax increases. But we'll have more on that later.

A streetcar window costs up to $5000 depending on the location.

I suggest we make Mr. Bass pay back the money.

Where is Bass when you need him?

Mayor Bullhorn is definitely worthy of an SNL skit. Watch him dance, jump into the bushes, beg for slush fund money, and move like a fat puppet on many strings. :)

Mayor Bullhorn is so correct. He is that, even when he doesn't have a bullhorn. Another KC leader who never learned how to talk only yell their opinion which always needs amplification since it is usually fallacious.

But didn't Super Dave prove the street car was a joke. Tony isn't only one who see's it for what it is.

I thought this was the joke.

the joke is 120 million for this junk.

Just keep in mind with Donald Trump, federal funding for transit projects is likely to dwindle.


So think about that before voting for this piece of garbage extension we don't need.

Send the Trolley "boys" home to their mama's. The trolley was a dinosaur before it was built. It would make a great diner. A person could get on order and eat a four course meal before getting back around to the place where they got on. In this case it's slowness would be an advantage for diners.
