Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Atlanta provides some lessons. The first five months of 2017 they had 200,000 riders. 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.

Will be curious to see Milwaukee's numbers, as they will have a fare. Atlanta provides some lessons. The first five months of 2017 they had 200,000 riders.

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.

Re: If you HAD to move to the Kansas side, where? (POLL)

So I commute down Merriam Lane/SW Blvd and have lately had this irresistible fantasy about buying all the property on the south side of SW from Old McDonalds down to the Vox Theater all the way south to the RR tracks. I've found myself on the Wyco parcel viewer checking owners and property values. I...

Re: Closed Bars and Restaurants

Pizza Bella closes, I'll admit to only eating there once.

Easy to blame Papa Keno's, but they closed their Mission Farms location last year.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Tried to sample Strange Days Brewery today, but they were closed Thursday and Friday because THEY WERE OUT OF BEER!

I hope it is because they are so popular and not because they don't know what they are doing.

Bad idea to randomly close.
