SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STEERS CYCLISTS AWAY FROM STREECAR LINE!!!



The latest toy train streetcar animation attempts to obfuscate a tragic betrayal of Kansas City bike/walk advocates.

To wit . . .

CHECK THIS KANSAS CITY STREETCAR PROMO CLIP DIRECTING CYCLISTS AWAY FROM THE STREETCAR LINE AND IMPOSING STRINGENT RULES ON BIKERS!!!

The description of the new safety guidelines:

"Short public service video about KC Streetcar safety and riding your bicycle around streetcar tracks in downtown Kansas City, Always look and listen before crossing the road, cross the tracks at a 90 degree angle and, whenever possible, use alternate bike-friendly routes."

An unrealistic look at how Kansas City cyclists should cross the streetcar line:



Final insult to injury . . . Toy train advocates don't want cyclists on their street . . .



Check the clip and realize that streetcar advocates have betrayed their former partners in promoting transit alternatives in Kansas City.

  1. Cyclists don't belong on downtown streets. I'm glad that I can finally agree with the streetcar people about something.

  2. Even transit advocate John Orcutt admits that “the American streetcar ‘renaissance’ of the past 15 years has mainly turned out turkeys”.

  3. Little is ever mentioned about the conflict between bicycles and in-street rails. New York has seen a quintupling in bicycle commuting since 2000, and streetcar tracks are a major hazard to these cyclists. A survey of 1,520 Portland cyclists revealed that two-thirds “have experienced a bike crash on tracks.”

  4. Kansas City is not comparable to New York!!!!!! We have no need for toy train tracks or bike lanes.

  5. millions directed to bike people while the city's water system crumbles. Progressives will be the end of us.

  6. Given that most of the cyclists will be moving faster than the streetcar, this really shouldn't be a problem.
    What training looking out for other vehicles are the "engineers" of this fiasco getting?
    All aboard!

  8. Oh my goodness.

    Tony has found something to bitch about regarding the TOY TRAIN!!!!!!!!

    This must be a MUST READ!

    Is it from an INSIDER?

    Does it merit attention within THE LAST FREE SPEECH ZONE?

    Does it have a female so I can get a post from the CUM GUY?

    Can I get multiple posts from the N-Word rube that pretends to represent multiple people.

    I swear, I wish life could be as predictable as Botello's output.

    Hey could you take down our Valentine's day promo?

    We'd rather euthanize a bunch of puppies than be associated with Tony's Kansas City.

  10. The streetcar fanboys sure are mad at our friend Tony.

    He must have really hit a nerve with them somewhere.

  11. Well his attitude is pretty childish. Anyone over the age of three would have to agree.

    I've already called Wayside Waifs to complain some racist is trying to speak for them. They objected.

  12. See you guys at the grand opening of the streetcar and the groundbreaking of the convention hotel. In the meantime I'm watching the ongoing construction of the Port KC sponsored Corrigan building in the crossroads. Looks like those projects stay winning

  13. Puppies don't care about the opinions of people who provide for them. I have heard some will even accept help from "progressives."

  14. The dream of the 80's is alive at TOOOOOONNNYYYYYY's
    Grumpy white man-children are complaining at TOOOOOOONNNNYYY's
    Change is so hard, so we knee jerk react on TOOOONNNNY's
    Kids don't like the stuff we like Grg!AngstyAngry at TOOOOOOONY's

    Tony's time Warp.

  15. I believe long obsolete transportation like streetcars that travel 9 mph and have four passengers on board clanking by will be good.

    Tourists can laugh and think can you believe they put this hunk of crap in here?

    Humor is good for the soul

  16. Yael, Steve and trolley boy are here again. Big woop.

  17. Not Mensa Boy?

    Self-delusion at it's best ^^^^^.

  18. Puppies and niggers go together. What's Wayside Waif's bitch ? Promoting dead puppies and dead niggers works on TKC.

  19. Maybe the next leg of the street car is to 57th and Prospect. We could then see if Johnson County would like to jump in to help fund a leg to Hallbrook CC.

  20. Hallbrook, HaHa! KC's drunk TIF cheerleaders riding free to SoJoCo via designated driver, er, uh, train thingy!
