Kansas City Light Rail Update
I am going to take the recent news about light rail in Kansas City as an opportunity to further plug Randal O’Toole’s work on this subject for SMI. In recent days, the lawsuit against the City Council for overturning the voter light-rail initiative was tossed out by the courts. Now, the Star is reporting on the pressure that the mayor and others are facing as they decide how to move forward, pun intended.
Randal O’Toole thinks Kansas City should move forward the responsible way, with expanded bus?rapid transit and the use of competitive contracting in the provision of transit services. I agree, and hope Kansas City oficials give his ideas strong consideration.
