Re: Regional Transit Coordination

London went cash free last year. Apparently they dropped from 25% cash fares to 1% from 2004 to 2014. So whatever they did could be a model for US cities. Really helps when your contactless bank card can be used to pay your fare. Blame the US banks for dropping the ball on RFID cards, which are bas...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Their TV service is so stagnate that it's getting kind of depressing. Channels are hardly introduced anymore, no new app updates, still can't set up anything out of house. They only seem to answer any questions days after the matter and even then, it isn't truly answered outside of the WS system out...

Re: Rams leaving St. Louis?

I hate the whole mentality of "LA Needs Two NFL Teams." I get they have 2 of every other of the 5 major leagues but good lord, the NFL draws on it's own. There is always an odd man out too when it comes to the teams, seems like MLB is the only one who avoids that plus somewhat the NHL teams at times...

Yeah, it's been no big secret in the community. They'll play at Swope, maybe a game or two at Sporting Park.

Re: Rams leaving St. Louis?

There is no other city more apathetic about their NFL team than STL. Feels like every other place in the country is crazy for their team but not the BFiB.

Re: Coffee

The music issue at Thou Mayest is strange. Each time I've gone, they've been playing about what you'd expect - catchy indie hip-hop, pop, etc. I've always enjoyed it. Never been confronted with "smooove jazz" though. Love their Christmas tree and poinsettias too; the place wins my most unexpected h...

Re: Uber/Lyft ride-sharing in Kansas City

Fun story, bus in Newark was awful, they didn't post anything online or on the bus stop I was waiting at on Saturday night in the cold pouring rain that they'd closed that stop the previous night forever. Wasn't til one of the workers at the hotel I was staying at walked by and informed me. Tried to...

Re: Sporting Kansas City

The races for the conference title and for the Supporters' Shield are heading down to the wire. With two matches to play, if Sporting wins both they will win the Eastern Conference and (at worst) split the Supporters' Shield. Saturday's match against second-place DC United is (just about) for all t...

Re: northland transit

It'd be nice if people would finally observe the bike lanes on Barry too. Riding down that road is the most dangerous trail in the city.

Re: northland transit

I live near KCI and usually use the 129 route to go downtown for classes/drinking, depending on time of day, packed with not only workers going downtown, but workers going up to the work places near the airport or at the airport. Possibly more direct expresses between the Boardwalk Depot/Airport and...

It's nice to beat the Columbus Crew since it means beating the Hunt family. Now, if I can just get the Hunts to sell the Chiefs.
Hunts sold the team to the Precourt family last year. Only own FC Dallas now.

I ride my bike on the sidewalks all over the area, I'm simply too fearful of the drivers around here to attempt to use the bike lanes.

Re: Sporting Kansas City

Question: Has anyone seen Sporting KC fans act poorly? I watched the re-run of SKC @ Real Salt Lake. The RSL fans seemed to be acting classless through most of the game. Everything from chanting, "Ref, you suck" to throwing trash on the field for calls they didn't like. I haven't been to many SKC g...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to the last two games, got drenched walking to the car after Tuesday night's game and was frozen to the core and slightly wet the entire night. Those were two of the best Royals games I've went to in all of my 23 years. I love watching this team right now.

Re: 2012 Sporting Kansas City

Good win. Fantastic goal by Zusi despite getting mugged. I'm not sure what to think about Bieler. He seems to have a great leg and puts shots on target when he gets them off, but it doesn't look like he's going to offer much creativity. A guy who can put them in the net from twenty yards out is def...

Re: Generic ongoing KCATA thread

While I am in general for streetcar to UMKC, it likely won't improve on MAX for those who already ride bus. It will be for those reluctant to ride bus. never underestimate the appeal of ride quality. My sister and variety of friends that I have on campus won't be caught dead riding the dangerous bu...

Re: Generic ongoing KCATA thread

as always, money. there's clearly demand for 15 minute headways at ALL times, as well as running every trip to UMKC and beyond. No kidding, as more and more of my fellow students at UMKC are discovering that they already pay for the bus, the lines to get on after class every 30 mins is getting ridi...
