Fake Ridership Stats And Constant Breakdowns Power Toy Train Streetcar Fleet
Again, the ridership estimates overlook the winter drop-off, claim that KC has better numbers than Dallas, Seattle & D.C. AND . . . Constant breakdowns are mostly unmentioned amid most news hype. Take a look:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Streetcar Authority is hoping to add two new cars to the near one-year-old line after ridership has far exceeded expectations. It would cost about $11 million per new car. They say ridership has nearly tripled their initial projections, and it will take more streetcars to keep up with demand.
