Kansas City made the right choice by voting no on light rail. Although there are positives to this idea, now is not the time to try it out. Billions of dollars would have been spent when we have a poor economy. It is important to consider the future, but it seems wise for Kansas City to wait.
Even though light rail would have benefited our transportation, it wouldn’t have benefited our economy. The next attempt for this plan should include a detailed route with the airport as a destination. Why waste billions of dollars on a rail that doesn’t even reach our airport?
