TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! AMID DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY PARKING CRISIS: BIG 12 FAILS TO REBOUND DECLINING STREETCAR RIDERSHIP!!!
Thanks to a photo sent by our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY we learned that the toy train streetcar hasn't enjoyed much success amid the Big 12 Tournament.

BIG 12 PATRONS CROWD DOWNTOWN PARKING RATHER THAN RIDE THE UNRELIABLE AND ALWAYS TARDY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!
This Saturday afternoon shot provides a bit of context and shows the mode of transit struggling to attract a crowd even in the best of circumstances.
To be fair, the biggest complaint from toy train riders is that "The Streetcar doesn't go anywhere!" and patrons aren't enjoying the River Market or Union Station OR the P&L District right next door when they can just grab a hot dog at the stadium for much cheaper. Supporters of the extension hope a bigger route will offer for variety for potential riders despite the novelty of the mode of transit quickly wearing off.
While supporters of this line offer phony boosterism supported only by taxpayer subsidized economic development schemes . . . Our blog community comes with PHOTOGRAPHIC FACTS and a slice of life for this cold Saturday.
