“One way to determine whether streetcars are transportation or toy is to look at when riders use the system. In Kansas City, the highest ridership is on Friday nights and Saturdays (and Sundays). People drive their cars downtown, park and ride around on the streetcar for entertainment.”
In the classic 1944 movie, “Meet Me in St. Louis,” Judy Garland sings, “I went to lose a jolly hour on the trolley.
