TKC QUESTION: SHOULD KANSAS CITY START CHARGING TOY TRAIN STREETCAR RYDERZ?!? EVERYBODY ELSE DOES!!!
At the end of the Summer the toy train looks exceptionally empty and those unverified, celebratory, propaganda ridership numbers seem to be slowing down in frequency . . . Maybe a few consultant checks didn't clear at the start of this month.
Whatever the case . . .
OUR BLOG COMMUNITY CONTINUES TO QUESTION KANSAS CITY'S FREEBIE STREETCAR PROFIT MODEL!!!
Actually, the streetcar is a money loser but I digress . . . Here's the word:
"Is the KC streetcar the only one in the nation that does not charge a fare? In Cincinnati, Tickets are $1 to ride for two hours and $2 for an all-day pass"
The KCMO Freebie streetcar line is the exception to the rule when it comes to free service but a fee for the short ride would be hard to collect in the current configuration.
Should KC think about charging for streetcar rides? Tell us why . . .
