Kansas City Streetcar To Mostly Empty Berkley Park Earns MILLIONS Of Fed Cash

There's one risky development down by the river with plans for more KAPUT thanks to the recent real estate market crash . . . Here's word of more local toy train from the mayor at a time when people are staying away from public transit and the toy train development boom has stalled amid the pandemic. Take a look:

Funny, and I wonder how much of that money goes under the table to the racist street graffiti? They have already depleted the GO Bond and I don't see any new sewer lines or sidewalks other than a patch here and there and that GO bond is compound.

TOP PHOTO -- A STREETCAR NAMED DESPERATE

The first streetcars introduced in Kansas City in 1870 were horse-powered. Today they're just pushed along by asses!!!

THE streetcar is still just a toy as well as a joke.
The latest developments just make it a more expensive toy than it already was.
More "free" (borrowed) money from Washington.
Sad.
