TKC EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR JANUARY RIDERSHIP SLUMP SAVED BY WOMEN PROTESTING PREZ TRUMP!!!



Winter in Kansas City has decimated hope that the Downtown Streetcar was anything more than a tourist attraction as locals turned toward more reliable bus transit during colder weather.

However . . . As usual, we found a bright side to continued rail transit disappointment.

To wit . . .

LATEST NUMBERS FROM THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN REVEAL THAT WOMEN PROTESTING AGAINST PREZ TRUMP BOOSTED AN OTHERWISE DISMAL MONTH FOR STREETCAR RIDERSHIP!!!



We updated the latest graph from the Kansas City Streetcar Authority in order to define the uptick in rides on an unusual January day that hit nearly 60 degrees and coincided with the Women's March On Washington in Kansas City.

Take a look:



Still, there remains controversy about the “Unlinked Passenger Trips” counting methodology that is more of an estimation than an accurate count and KCMO has scaled back numbers that CURIOUSLY claimed to be higher than Seattle, Dallas and Washington D.C. . . .

And so . . .

SO FAR WOMEN AGAINST PREZ TRUMP HAVE PROVED TO BE THE DRIVING FORCE FOR KANSAS CITY STREETCAR RIDERSHIP IN 2017 AND THAT DOESN'T BODE WELL FOR MORE FED FUNDING FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS UNDER THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION!!!

You decide . . .

This pretty much sums up all of today's news in one easy to read offering.



Partial transcript as follows:

CARSON: Greetings from the great state of Indiana. I’m Congressman Andre Carson.

PELOSI (OFF MIC): Tell them you’re a Muslim. Tell them you’re a Muslim.

CARSON: Not only do I represent Indiana’s seventh congressional district very proudly, but I happen to be a Muslim and a former police officer.

The trolley counting is fake. We all know that. How can 300 women ride the train that many times.

The streetcar is the worst running joke in KC!

I've decided this is an idiotic write up I have no desire to waste my time commenting on.

How bout focusing on the Mayor who seems bound and determined to fuck everybody over in KCMO for his own personal advancement.

Dems are digging their own grave and their revolt against his legitimacy will, in the short term at least, boost Trump’s popularity.

What is better suited for the broads than pulling the train?

So does this mean they all parked for free in the River Market on a Saturday morning and then took the train to Crown Center?
I'm sure that worked well for the businesses in the Market area.
What's that sucking sound?
Frosty.

DEFINITIONS. The APTA Public Transportation Ridership Report contains data for total unlinked transit passenger trips. Unlinked Transit Passenger Trip is a trip on one transit vehicle regardless of the type of fare paid or transfer presented.

So is there an actual controversy over the use of a standard method of counting passengers or is this just more made up Botello Bullshit?

I look at this chart and sit here thinking who the hell went to the trouble to make this up. All you people stomping around acting like you hate Trump need to be stomping around yelling at City Hall for handing out "Fake Lies" as this. You need to be stomping around and getting James thrown out of office. Trump isn't the one you need to be worrying about. The so called leaders in office at 12th and Oak are who you need to be protesting to get thrown out of office.

10:27: Given that Luddites are opposed to progress, I don't think streetcar opponents would qualify for that term. The Luddites would more likely oppose cars and buses, which have both been accepted as progress over fixed rail city transit.

I think Tony took Toni.

Lol man are you ever naive. Sly's buddy Anthony Foxx has left the auditorium.

Can't wait to see how well Dem Choo-Choo Charlie Hales does pushing his portlanida streetcar racket to Trump either.

11:30, your logic only works if streetcar opponents were Luddites (they aren't) and if the opponents were really opposed to progress (they aren't). The opposition is to what certainly appears to be a hideously expensive boondoggle designed to enrich a few at the top and of limited or no benefit to the people who will end up paying for it.

The streetcar expansion is going to be yuge, bigly. And Tony is going to pay for it....

3:53: My point is the streetcar proponents are more likely to be Luddites (going back to an earlier transportation system) than the opponents. Sorry for the confusion.
