Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Yes, the fact that this could very well be a real person with these real views says a lot about the Kansas City metro.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

We had almost 800,000 https://atlanta.curbed.com/2017/6/9/15760906/atlanta-streetcar-increased-ridership-resolved-safety-issues Right, I'm aware of the general connection between fares and ridership.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Just came back from SF. 19th ave is the main N/S thoroughfare thru town and there are no left turns allowed.

Turn right one block ahead and loop back around, it's not that hard.

Re: Troost developments

Not to reflect on this project, but KC has been suckered plenty of times with the demo happening, then, poof!, the plans fell through! Guess I'll just make some parking.
