Should Omaha Follow Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar Lead???

Interesting consideration of Kansas City's transit hot mess that actually takes some time to consider both side of the toy train issue but fails to mention that KCMO STREETCAR RIDERSHIP HAS BEEN IN DECLINE FOR MONTHS BY THEIR OWN ACCOUNT . . . Read more:

Kansas City's streetcar, which began service in 2016, is considered a success. Could it work in Omaha?

On a sunny Wednesday afternoon in November, people filled a shiny streetcar as it hummed through downtown Kansas City, Missouri. Most of the 38 blue plastic seats were occupied. Several dozen more people stood. They held onto stainless steel poles, or to loops dangling from bars connected to the ceiling.

OF COURSE they should buy in! Then they can have 25 millions tourists a year too!

Why not connect the two?

^^^ This is the kind of forward thinking we need. Get @8:11 a consulting contract and another twitter account. STAT!

Is that really the number of tourists that KC claims to have every year? That's a bit much. KC gets a lot of visitors to the region but Denver just broke the 30 million mark this year and there has been a really big boom in our visitor numbers. KC is great but that number is a little hard to believe.

KC is a smart city. I think we count the people passing through on the highway as tourists.

5 million a year to maintain.

Try DOUBLE that.

Let’s see....you people know nothing about this town. You damn sure don’t know anything about other towns. Why don’t you keep your ignorant mouths shut? Not every post requires a comment.

^^^ is that why you're here at 8:27 in the morning. To fight with people who you CLAIM don't know anything. Good luck with that, enjoy that streetcar in Omaha. I'm sure it will make it a slightly less embarrassing dump.

Everyone seems a bit grouchy this morning. Come on, folks. It's Christmas season. Grab a cup of coffee and relax a bit.

So why are you commenting?

Perhaps if Omaha decides to build a streetcar Mensa boy will move back to his home state.

How's about connecting the KC Toy train to the Omaha Nebraska toy train ? That way we can send our homeless people and inner city youth scholar's hood rats up to Nebraska that will spread inclusion and diversity inflicted upon them ?

Is the streetcar called a success only because it has a fair number of riders? Anything will be a popular success if it's given away. It's only a success if lots of people will pay a fare to ride it.

Why not sell the cars to Omaha and that way Kansas City taxpayers will get some of their money back.

There's lots of white people in Omaha that will love a free streetcar.

Maybe Omaha can provide KC with airport services instead and we all win.

Maybe we can share an NBA team with them ?

9:03 p.m. made me laugh about us sending Omaha our homeless and our inner city youth scholar hoodrats. Omaha has PLENTY of both, especially in the area close to the Iowa line. Anyone moving to Omaha would feel right at home. The only difference appears to be the movement of whites to the west side of town. They don't appear to have a state line sucking the wealthy and influential out of the city.

Omaha is as stupid as we are. If the FOO FOO Fighters send a couple of "EXPERTS" up there they can spend all of their money foolishly too.
