Robinson wants 3ts district bike lanes removed and no more built.
Busses having bike racks must be lost on her.

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

This is a general post, not directed at anybody here. I Just keep hearing this idea of running trams to the sports complex. I'm kind of a transit nerd, but maybe I'm missing something as to how in the world that would make any sense. I bet the single most important route for this event will be airp...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

One FIFA official that was interviewed on the radio yesterday said their #1 priority in selecting sites is the stadium where the games will be played - if the stadium and field aren't top quality, it's a non-starter. Arrowhead is the 4th largest stadium of the 17 host cities and already plays on na...

Re: Bike Lanes

I'm guessing this is about priorities in that District. Residents might feel the City should be spending on repairing sidewalks and picking up bulky items from neighborhoods more quickly. I see this complaint regularly on the neighborhood's Facebook page. Residents don't feel installing bike lanes ...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

With streetcar Plaza extension running by then they could simply run constant buses from Union Station, which would essentially cover all hotels along the line. P&L/Live would be closer to I70, another gathering point option. Again, this is a horrible idea. The train can't possibly hold the capacit...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

I'm sure they did, but I really hope they show the FIFA officials the new airport so it can be made very clear that the piece of shit they arrived won't be the 2026 airport for players. The idea that they wouldn't know this well before arriving is so unlikely that it shouldn't have been on the list...

Denver Vs KC has one huge factor. Altitude. Denver is not the best environment for the players and that's FIFA's #1 consideration.
Mexico City is 2000 feet higher
Guadalajara is 100 feet lower

It's not as big an issue as you think

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

The due dilligence was already done when NextRail study was completed and the Trolly Trail was deemed the most feasible. Anyways just sharing this for no particular reason that I saw on Twitter the Streetcar account responded to. Cool yes, but more development potential elsewhere. They *only* studi...

Wonder if they will have an open house before operations begin like they did with Bartle Hall in '94 and Union Station in 1914?
You would have to go through TSA security if they have one.
Given it would likely need to be before operations, I don't see this as a barrier.

Yes they would. A growing chunk is anti public support for stadiums. Building a Cadillac stadium on the public dime is a main argument against public support.
This chunk is likely much smaller than one willing to vote yes to keep the team.

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

I live very close to that pink route, I think it would be really hard to do it because Oak is only a single lane street with a bunch of stop signs. When it’s rush hour, it gets extremely backed up there. It’s probably better to go somewhere where there’s more than one lane. Complaining there's too ...

That's not bad. If this route would get built I wouldn't fight over any of those three ideas getting built.

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

How are you going to get to Troost from UMKC without going to 63rd via Brookside Blvd or Country Club ROW You mimic the Riverfront line extension. The train travels south on Brookside to UMKC stop and doubles back and turns to MLK This provides a stop at Rockhill, 4 blocks away. It's nicely positio...
