Glad nobody was hurt.

So when a crane runs into a bus, do they shut all the other buses down?

"Transit" - Conveyance or transportation from one place to another, as of persons or goods, especially, local public transportation.

It appears that the ability to move people or things is required for the use of the term "Transit."

"The glass on the east side of the streetcar was fractured. A scrape mark ran the length of the streetcar."

YEAH THAT'S "TOTALED," ALL RIGHT!

As someone else pointed out, Tony, you might want to read your bullshit ONCE before plowing right ahead with it.

Streetcar folks gave me the estimate, the system is fragile, costly, inflexible, and unreliable but let's do more on marginal routes.

Doesn't look totaled to me, if those are even honest pictures which they're probably not.

BREAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Burns and McDonnell has already offered an unsolicited bid to repair the damaged streetcar, only $1.2 billion!

Mayor James says that Burns and McDonnell is the only one stepping forward, so they should be given the work.

Troy Schulte reports it won't cost taxpayers a dime.

Jolie Justus denies any conflicts of interest, and will push through an emergency ordinance approving the no-bid repair contract with an accelerated effective date.

Were any of the 24 trillion riders injured?? Were the fabulous economic developments disrupted??

Trolley boy's off and running to clean up this mess.

Good point, 1:23, and probably one reason our forbears saw fit to do away with fixed rail transit.

Will they refund fares to the tourist on the trolley that were not able to complete their rides?

Fix it up and turn it in to a crossroads reasturant. A STREET CAR NAMED TONYS K.C.

1:52 nailed it

Super Dave said...

Was the driver tested for drugs or alcohol?

Looks like the work zone was marked well but I guess the driver was to busy counting all the riders to see his path was blocked.

A robot driver would have stopped.

Streetcar is accident prone. A failed transit system. Time to call it quits.

Tony Botello is right. Fuck Kansas City. Demolish any and all developments and use all money to round up homos and throw them off the rooftops.

Trolley boy was up late last night. Does he get paid overtime for posting his usual inane ad hominem herf derfs supporting fixed rail "transit" that duplicates the MAX, among other routes?
