We’ve got a couple of free hours tonight so we’re gonna ride on the toy train streetcar aimlessly like all the other hobos and drunkards downtown this evening thanks to a new transit feature.
To wit . . .
JUST AS STREETCAR CRITICS SUSPECTED . . . TRANSIT EXPERTS CONFIRM THAT THE THE TOY TRAIN IS MORE ABOUT SERVICING TOURISTS AND PARTY PEOPLE THAN DOWNTOWN WORKERS!!!
Check the confirmation by way of their words . . .
“The KC Streetcar will begin extended Sunday service hours Sunday, April 9.
“The new Sunday service schedule will run streetcars from 7:00 a.m. and until 11:00 p.m., adding an extra hour in the evening. This change is based on ridership demand and downtown activity.
“What we’ve seen is that Sunday is typically the second busiest ridership day of the week for the KC Streetcar, but offers the lowest service level in terms of hours of operation and number of streetcars on the route,” said Donna Mandelbaum, communications manager with the KC Streetcar Authority. “This change in operations will better serve the downtown residents as well as those visiting for events at the Sprint Center, the Power & Light District, Union Station and everything in between.”
“Hours of operation for the KC Streetcar are 6:00 a.m.-Midnight, Monday through Thursday; 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. on Fridays; 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. on Saturdays; and 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. on Sundays . . .”
And so, this is an appropriate place to take a pause and consider even more local topics for the morning update.
As always, thanks for reading this week . . .
