TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! GARTH BROOKS KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN BREAKDOWN PROVES THE STREETCAR IS A LEMON!!!



Count another high-profile embarrassment for the toy train streetcar that once again has to depend on far more reliable bus transit for backup.

To wit . . .

NOW WE HAVE EVEN MORE PROOF THAT THE KANSAS CITY STREETCAR DOESN'T WORK AND IS MERELY TOY TRANSIT THAT'S UNDEPENDABLE!!!

So far this weekend we've confirmed that the ridership numbers are fake, the economic development is more of a ponzi scheme run by political consultants and in the clutch the toy train stalls.

Check the links for evidence and proof of what our blog community has contended all along . . .The KCMO Streetcar is a toy that doesn't fulfill REAL transit needs:

KMBC: Streetcar maintenance strands hundreds after Garth Brooks show

Fox4: After announcing streetcar will run for extra hour, repairs cause it to shut down early leaving Garth Brooks fans stranded

KC Streetcar: We sincerely & profusely apologize for the inconvenience #kcstreetcar riders experienced last night. More details in statement. #wesorry

You decide . . .

We didn't need THIS to prove it.

The thing broke down on opening day. That sealed the deal.

I hope somebody makes a copy of that letter than then shows it to the streetcar supporters when they talk about reliability.

I think what was worse is how the streetcar told people to get off main st. on twitter. They don't own the road. Maybe the streetcar should get off main street since it is the one that keeps stalling?

They rushed this thing, now we'll enjoy a banquet of shoddy work. (Consequences)

We already know management is basically worthless.

"Hundreds of people had to walk from the Sprint Center to their vehicles several blocks away. No buses were provided."

The indignity of it all! Can't they just move the Sprint Center to 159th and something. All parties will be pleased.

Hilarious, while KC locals such as Kate Spade, Paul Rudd, Walt Disney, & Earnest Hemmingway have all moved on to make something of themselves as well as millions of dollars, poor little Tony still hides out in his mom's basement or squats on the free wifi at Starbucks having done nothing... pobrecito!!!

2:46, you can probably see Tony from where you're churning out the lattes. You might even get to bus his table later.

And the streetcar people apologized but said that 40,000 people rode the streetcar this weekend anyway. Yeah, right. And where did those 40,000 people park their cars to ride the streetcar?

Why did it need street repairs only one year it was built?

Streetcar is tweeting to people who have complained that they will reimburse for uber rides to their cars. Let's all send our receipts to kcstreetcar and make some buck on this.

Well then where are the intensive, TKC-sponsored, passenger counts disproving the real data? Get Stupor Dave out there with a clipboard!

Wait he can't count past ten. Runs out of fingers.

Because the bizarrely high numbers we're given make total sense, even though these numbers dwarf those of much larger cities with more established systems. Sure!

And let's not have any independent audits. Hmm. Wonder why City Hall's so scared of that....lol

The streetcar did not break down, it was closed down for scheduled maintenance.

Some one was being anal retentive ...

City writes the bonds on behalf of the TDD for two percentage points less interest rate. Any shortfalls will fall upon the city (you and me).
The expansion is a big money loser. Any business along main that's not a restaurant will move. You won't be able to sell a Cadillac at 32nd and main with 11% local tax. That is just one example. Are we going to have 4 miles of restaurants and breweries? Won't happen. Lots of empty businesses don't generate the revenue required to pay for this turd. The rest of the city will be on the hook.
Train expansion is a money pit.

And restaurants and bars on Main Street are going to have a lot of fun fitting their wide beer and food delivery trucks within the white parking lines for the streetcar.

Why are they tweeting using Ebonics?

Anonymous said...

Home Depot and Costco along with other surface parking businesses will enjoy the $54 per space per year fee for the TDD. Kind of puts them on the edge of profitability. Their margins are already low. They thrive on volume only. If prices aren't competitive people will go elsewhere.
If they threaten to leave maybe they can get the same deal as the KC Star (who agrees to pump up the volume on the streetcar). What a crooked racket. Fuck the Star!

How the hell did management screw this up?

And guess what? People are going to forget this and move on, like normal people do. People are killing their kids and feeding the corpses to pigs. Who gives a shit?

The communications director for the streetcar authority declined FOX 4's request for an on-camera interview to explain the miscommunication with riders.
