Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I saw someone driving a gasoline-powered golf cart northbound on the sidewalk of the 1200 block of Main. That sidewalk has ZERO room for vehicles, let alone people.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Electric scooters now permitted on board KCATA-operated buses (which is almost all of them): https://twitter.com/RideKCTransit/statu ... 0695421952

Obviously don't try this during rush hour.

You can also use the Transit app. Here's a view of Birds in Santa Monica (their home city) of that app:

Re: 19th and Oak - Milhaus Mixed Use Development in East Crossroads

For the record, the official "20th Street" plan stopped at McGee (and was implemented to Grand). The plan goes much farther west than SW Blvd, even though that was the western edge of what was built. If the city plans to do something about the Oak viaduct -- haven't heard anything about it! -- then ...

Maybe I misunderstood the comment. No one's going to ban scooters specific city streets. It's already illegal to ride on the sidewalks.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

^Have noticed Bird blocks out no ride zones on the map for some cities (in red on map). Main St shouldn't be allowed riding methinks at all, especially through CBD/Xroads. In general not in support of riding on sidewalk (given the 15mph speed) but not enforce if no pedestrian on sidewalk at time. N...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Will Lime be hitting KC soon? And will they target scooters only or bikes as well? Dockless scooters seem less intrusive/messy than dockless bikes and generally more convenient being powered.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

When I click through the "permits" link for that on parcel viewer, there's nothing recent. This leads me to believe this renovation is NOT permitted by the city. I'd report it to 311. There's usually a reason people avoid getting permits...

Ugh. Some dude bought it from the Leedys, kicked everyone out and has clearly failed at this renovation.
There was work going on at this site today. Maybe it's not a lost cause.

Re: Church of the Resurrection Downtown Campus

The thing that troubles me about the existence of this church - not the building - is that Grand Avenue Temple, also UMC, is less than a mile away and, if I'm not mistaken, has been struggling financially for decades. Churches are now a full-on business. There's a limited market of customers, and y...

I tried to check out all three of the scooters at Corrigan around 1pm. The app recognized the QR code but wouldn't complete the checkout. Force closed the app and even restarted my phone and it was stuck "unlocking" one of them for well over 10 minutes. It finally released and I think I might have b...
