Re: Streetcar to the riverfront

operationally, riverfront would only become a spur if you extend north of the river on the heart of america bridge. as of today, it would simply be the northern terminus of a 7-mile (!) streetcar line. However, it might be just another stop if a dedicated transit bridge is built with a NKC extensio...

Re: North Oak MAX

Apologies for bringing up potentially fantastical thoughts, but I'm wondering why a N Oak MAX can't run one stop north to new KCI, combining with 229 for higher frequency? A MAX station curbside at a new KCI with frequent fare-free trips to downtown servicing Prairie View or N Oak along the way - wo...

Re: KC Bike share

Would love to see a station at Hospital Hill, allowing me to rent a bike in NKC and take it to work boosted by a streetcar ride.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

^Nicely put. The input should be considered by those who are paying for it, those who live along the extension. Agree that those who are paying and living along the line deserve the heaviest sway. It's a weird process with TDDs. If it wasn't up to locals, we wouldn't have any new rails in the pavem...

I think the further you get outside of downtown and the longer the line gets, the more sense it makes to go center lane. Traffic enforcement decreases, and the chance for delay grows. I don't necessarily see it as a 'commuter' mentality, and I think it makes Main Street look so much less menacing wh...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC
