Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Honestly, if you live right by a streetcar stop WoodDraw you should be using itsab.us. I too live and work near a stop and I always use it to time my arrival to the station. Rarely wait more than a minute, two tops. But I feel you re: stopping at red lights--it's BS that we could easily solve from ...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

We don't want signal priority, we want OGL enabled downtown so the whole area can be managed as one We need to speed up leaving Main and slow down turning onto it. Who cares if it gets a green light at 7th if it has to wait at 14th because the cars turning left onto Truman back up into the through ...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I just missed a streetcar today. Since I have heard people say they can out walk it, I did a little jog to see if i could catch up by the next stop. I wasn't even close. That's part of the problem. I live right on the streetcar. Last time I tried to take it for a planned reason, I walked from the s...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Tbf, they need more streetcars and they need higher signal priority. Some of this is on the city, and some of it is just figuring out the system. It sucks that it takes half a decade to order a new damn car.

And it's just too short. But we need to be honest with the shortcomings.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

start charging and I will never ride the streetcar again. Just being honest. I'm not paying for 1/2 mile ride that I can walk in 5 minutes. If it went to the plaza/airport/stadiums/etc then I would consider paying, but I would never pay for the current line. Exaggerate much? Since you're clearly wa...

Re: KU-MU rivalry reborn?

They'd have to get an exemption from the NCAA. They're positioning it as a one off charity game for hurricane relief. It wouldn't be a great look for the NCAA to say no.

I just heard about it on lunch so I hope it's better than the story I was told. But apparently Sly James is posting reviews on Amazon for like fishing nets being like oh did you know Kansas City has fishing.

Anyway, I hope I'm wrong.

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

I mean it takes 45 minutes to fly to stl and an hour to Chicago. The only way this changes things is if it's just as fast and cheaper. And lacks the airport security theater I guess.

Why can't we just invest in our current rail system?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

New Century is slightly bigger than Midway and the runways are basically the same length. It's not too much off the size of Punta Gorda airport, which Allegiant flies from KCI into, while other airlines use the main Ft. Meyers airport. And that metro is 1/3 the size of KC Oh, it might not be feasib...

Re: Should Jackson Co. relocate the Correctional Facility?

I love how replacing a county jail turns into a debate on the death penalty here.

The answer is that the jail is disgusting and going to continue to cost money from lawsuits. We need a jail, it's cheaper to build new, so we should build a new one somewhere.

Missouri could undercut any Kansas airport in one day. The state would have to issue the bonds and even then...

One of the main points the recent proposals made was that kci has runway infrastructure that other cities would beg for. A Kansas airport is a pipedream.

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

What's the cost advantage of paying to get freight from Kansas City to STL in 30 minutes instead of 4 hours though? And like then what do you do with it? Load it back on to trucks?

This is all just vapor.

One of those slots is for the new car sharing and a few more are for electric charging. I agree they should go, but I'm skeptical. Also ups parking.
