Re: Meet up following E-W SC meeting Tuesday, Oct 4th?

I'm not sure I see a point of going to the stadiums if the Royals are DT but they had every option and route with the ability for those who came to express their opinion. It seems so, so early to make a decision with viability not even being studying enough yet or cost. Lots of people live between ...

Participate online. It's an equal experience, other than not being able to talk to people.

Re: Bike Lanes

If the road network were implemented in the same way as the bike (or ped) network, this bitching would be non-existent. Wouldn't you be pissed if roads just ended without signage or explanation?

Re: KU/KCK <-----> TSC East/West Transit

I just hope this isn't bus only That all depends on the funding situation. You can't build it -- BRT or streetcar -- with existing revenues. A new source must be found and the downtown/midtown method (TDD sales + assessments) won't generate enough on its own. R E G I O N A L. F U N D I N G. Fully u...

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

Overnight change all at once is what I remember reading Don't the planes just pull up to a different build...

Re: KU/KCK <-----> TSC East/West Transit

For the hundredth time... there's plenty of population on the way to the stadiums . If the proposal stopped at the Blue River (where density drops off a cliff) you'd all be complaining that it doesn't go far enough.

Re: OFFICIAL - Main Street Streetcar Extension

1. Most US bus systems are *not* the honor system. Other than a few fancy BRT routes, most are pay the front door where you interact with the driver. LRT systems are honor system. Heavy rail typically has turnstiles. Also, fare collection systems are expensive. Where does that money come from? Local...

Re: OFFICIAL - Main Street Streetcar Extension

It's true that we're experiencing the lowest levels of bus service, but that's entirely due to the staffing crisis. They're working hard to hire and improve pay (see the latest article about the union negotiation just months after the last contract was signed). The network was redesigned to boost fr...

Re: OFFICIAL - Main Street Streetcar Extension

What will they do with the main stree max buses? Just park them? I still don't understand why they would not make a new route on Broadway or something. It really seems like kc's bus system is a fraction of what it once was. Why spend so much on streetcar and not have a robust bus system. I know.......

Re: Bike Lanes

Rode the gilliam/oak cycle track the full length this morning. What a fantastic asset for our city! Lots of people out and so much better than riding in the street. I like it way more than the gravel trails too. I know some people on here say they never see them used but momentum is growing. The mo...

Re: Regional Transit Coordination

A major question with this corridor is co-mingling of UG and KCMO operating assistance. It isn't really done today, only on the margins. The next challenge will be actually reducing the travel time for such a long distance while maintaining access along the way. Great project, though!

Crossroads here! The Rosie Privitera proposal is a non-starter. Rampant demolition of East Crossroads will meet nuclear force.
