STL HATES THEIR TOY TRAIN, TOO!!!

Opposition to streetcars isn't based resistance to change or problems with hipsters. Instead, locals across the State decry voter suppression, questionable TDD tactics that even the Missouri auditor challenges and overall imposition forced upon car traffic and pedestrians.

And all of this is perfectly illustrated in an EPIC t-shirt news story found by one of our AWESOME TKC READERS. Checkit:

That Delmar loop trolley costed about $51 million and it is no shorter than the KC streetcar which I read costed $102 million. And it is nostslgia driven on its face, not nostalgia masquerading as transit like our silly street car. Thanks,

You just push it hard on social media to get the yes votes and keep all the important info out of view of your opponents, which is the general public.

@5:07, the "LIAR" you detect is the smell of your own trousers aflame!

What a shame that KC doesn't have this level of artistic talent and integrity - we could have a great trolley t-shirt too - goodness knows we have enough material for satire.

Or skip the pretentious horseshit entirely and do your drinking in NKC where the good times still roll!

Riders have to pay a fare in Stl so of course it's less liked. Just think how much worse the rider numbers would be here in KC if the streetcar even cost $1 to ride

Street car is so silly. Time to ban it.

Tony and the geezers don't know the difference between a trolley and a light rail system. Sad.

Streetcar is not light rail. It is slower than a bicycle.

The point about how the delmar trolley charges a fare is exactly right. Big deal a lot of people ride the toy train here. Is it any surprise if you give out somethin for nothin that a lot of People will ride it? Ridership will be literally zero if it charged the dollar fifty fare that metro buses charge.
