AS KANSAS CITY DEMOCRACY WITHERS: WISH STREETCAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!



Birthed by way of voter suppression, rigged votes and a sketchy array of insider deals, no bid contracts and disparity of resources directed toward downtown and away from neighborhoods.

Here's a glimpse of the company line:

It’s our 3rd Birthday!! 🎉 🎈 What a ride it’s been. Fun fact: in 3 years of service, the #kcstreetcar logged more than 6.2 million passenger trips. Wow!! Thank you for riding, #KansasCity. Stay tuned here for more birthday fun all week long.

According . . .

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR BIRTHDAY WISHES WITH THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAINS STREETCAR!!!

Yes.
6.2 million riders on THE streetcar.
25 million tourists a year in KCMO.
Sly James weighs just 175 pounds.
The Star wins journalism awards.
Justus and Lucas are competent candidates for mayor.
And KCMO is leading the way for cities across the country.
Fantasyland on the plains.

5,662 riders a day, everyday for 1095 days straight. Don’t know how many days in three years it was’nt or couldn’t run but I’m sure it’s all a lie anyway.

My birthday wish for the streetcar is for it to be driven right up Sly’s fat lard ass, never to be seen again.

The street car and BikeKC, two biggest boondoggles in the State of Missouri.

My name is Mark Funknasty, I created this city and have been having homo relations with Sly, we know how to keep us happy and fuck the voter over, because they are fucking stupid. said...

The bird scooter that litters the city is the greatest boondoggle in not just Missouri but any state or city that allows it, it might be a scooter but looks like bird shit on every sidewalk this trash is allowed to operate on. But hey, Millenials cant afford their high priced loft downtown, and they can bird scooter to the bus stop to get them to the job they bitch about that they have. On the weekend its recreational scooter rides, and if they skimp on the rent they can afford to ride the peddle bar, which is the most illegal vehicle on the road!

My neighborhood has 250 homes and in 3 years we made over 1 million trips.

Ridership stats mean nothing when there is no fare charged! Somethin' for nothin' - sure people line up for it. If they even charged fifty cents ridership would instantly drop in half.

$102 million for 2 miles of street rail. It's unintentionally hilarious/embarrassing for KC that Civic leaders are even talking about it let alone acting like it is progress or "momentum" or whatever.

Truth is streetcar cannibalizes bus transit e.g. KCATA board cluelessly giving a million to the expansion whilst making drastic cuts to bus routes (compare e.g. the 570 or the 47 or 28 today to two years ago) and removing stops.
Thanks,
