KANSAS CITY SUNDAY NIGHT STREETCAR EXTENDED HOURS CONFIRM 'TOURISTY FROU-FROU' TOY TRAIN SUSPICIONS!!!



We've got a couple of free hours tonight so we're gonna ride on the toy train streetcar aimlessly like all the other hobos and drunkards downtown this evening thanks to a new transit feature.

To wit . . .

JUST AS STREETCAR CRITICS SUSPECTED . . . TRANSIT EXPERTS CONFIRM THAT THE THE TOY TRAIN IS MORE ABOUT SERVICING TOURISTS AND PARTY PEOPLE THAN DOWNTOWN WORKERS!!!

Check the confirmation by way of their words . . .

KC STREETCAR EXTENDS SUNDAY SERVICE HOURS

"The KC Streetcar will begin extended Sunday service hours Sunday, April 9.

"The new Sunday service schedule will run streetcars from 7:00 a.m. and until 11:00 p.m., adding an extra hour in the evening. This change is based on ridership demand and downtown activity.

“What we’ve seen is that Sunday is typically the second busiest ridership day of the week for the KC Streetcar, but offers the lowest service level in terms of hours of operation and number of streetcars on the route,” said Donna Mandelbaum, communications manager with the KC Streetcar Authority. “This change in operations will better serve the downtown residents as well as those visiting for events at the Sprint Center, the Power & Light District, Union Station and everything in between.”

"Hours of operation for the KC Streetcar are 6:00 a.m.-Midnight, Monday through Thursday; 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. on Fridays; 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. on Saturdays; and 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. on Sundays . . ."

And so, this is an appropriate place to take a pause and consider even more local topics for the morning update.

As always, thanks for reading this week . . .

At this point we need to make sure there are as many people on it as possible. Tourists or otherwise. What we can't risk is people getting tired of the novelty or just using it on special occasions. To that end, this is a good ideas.

It's not real transit. When people need to get some place in a hurry they take their car, the bus or call a cab or an Uber. This is just for fun and weekends. There's no point in thinking otherwise.

Good lord, can you stop bitching about the train? Every damn day it's the same thing. Also Amtrack is about to go away, Premier Trump destroyed their budget.

6:25 Trump did not destroy the Amtrak budget. It was run by the private sector and was failing when the Govt. came in and took it over, which they had NO BUSINESS DOING So people in D.C. could use it, Dumb ass pedophiles like Joe Biden.

So if Trump cuts the Amtrak budget that's more tax dollars in the peoples pocket, and Amtrak needs to go back to private sector. Govt doesn't need to run business.

And maybe you need to learn how to spell Amtrak.
