Here's longstanding complaint that Kansas City travelers have constantly voiced but local mainstream media keeps silent . . .
THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN IS UNRELIABLE AND OFTEN SHUTS DOWN DURING COLD WEATHER & RAIN!!!
Check reader testimony on this cowtown fact of life . . .
The streetcar is not running, ... again. There are two train cars sitting in front of Union Station. I asked the workers what is wrong. I was told, and I quote, "The streetcar needs a doctor." Then, I was told not to worry, a bus would be dispatched to run the route.
Your tax dollars hard at work!
Sadly, it seems that local news is only interested in easily reported expansion cheerleading stories . . .
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Officials are looking into whether or not it is feasible to take the KC Streetcar north across the Missouri River and into North Kansas City. A study is being conducted by the Kansas City Streetcar Authority, city of North Kansas City and the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Transportation and the city of Kansas City, Missouri.
Meanwhile, the reality is that the current system OFTEN SHUTS DOWN and remains a sketchy development & tourist scheme . . . Not real transit.
You decide . . .
