Re: “Kansas City streetcar lawsuit dismissed

I would think that the "streetcar line" should be extended to include most of the Kansas City Metro area, as has been done in other cites, and not restricted to the relatively useless 2 mile stretch being offered.

There are many abandoned railroad right of ways in the preferred routing needed to expand this idea. I know this as fact, after being in the rail industry over 30 years.

This would be a public access measure that would allow reduction in highway congestion, fossil fuel consumption, including expanding employment opportunities for the city's population and could be a means of full or partial self maintenance with a small fee with the inclusion of the other forms of public transportation throughout the city. (example)=( a fee charged for for use of ALL public transportation [$1(one dollar)] per trip daily per trip including the Streetcar, Bus or local Taxi type access to destination).

If this idea is properly promoted, the funding would also include help from the Federal and State agencies that are available to these types of projects.
The infrastructure and equipment needed is available now, we just need to expand our thinking to the future requirements of the City with the addition this proposal.

I hope others can see past the restricted thinking and accept that our city needs this expansion to be prepared for our city's growth needs.

I would like to hear others thoughts and ideas on this subject.
