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: West 39th Street Apartments

I love the comments about congestion. The idea that a single apartment complex would create congestion is absurd. Maybe if everyone in the complex routinely left and arrived at exactly the same time it would create a 2 minute traffic jam. I've lived near much larger complexes and their impacts on t...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I outwalk the streetcar on a fairly consistent basis. I've posted about it here multiple times. It's also horribly unreliable. Have a train to catch? You can't depend on any consistency in timing of streetcars. Better to just start walking and maybe you'll time it right. yes, we know. do you use tr...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

The biggest response that I hear from my suburbanite friends when I talk about how popular the streetcar is, is “Just wait til they start charging for it! No one will ride!”. Please don’t make us urban supporters look stupid by charging. Just don’t even research it. They don't even need to do a pol...

Re: Porchfest

Having to cross SW trafficway was kind of a pain. Maybe just have it all in roanoake next year would be better. Thought it was a little too spread out this year. i consulted with them on that. didn't people park on the trafficway (which is totes legal on the weekend) to calm the traffic a bit? were...

Re: 2019 Mayor/Council Elections

Just out of curiosity, what are the requirements for running for a council seat? Candidates for mayor and City Council positions must be at least 25 years old, qualified City voters, residents of the City for five years and of their district for six months, and have paid City and county taxes for t...

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 - w...
