I think I see two buildings that would make great candidates for a zip line from downtown to plaza

Of course KC could use a light rail system with trains going out to the suburbs and connecting the major area attractions (airport to stadiums to downtown/plaza/midtown to legends, back up to airport)... but it'll never happen, nobody in this town thinks towards the future. Especially the idiots at KCATA.

I've been very disenfranchised over this issue ever since it was passed by voters then scrapped by bureaucrats who we pay to make these things happen.

Of course it can if people actually cared... How many people live in the KC metro??? The US is seriously depressing when it comes to public transit; where I live now they have trams, light rail, etc. in metros of just a few hundred thousand people (yes I know city layouts can be different)! For some reason public transit in the US keeps getting shot down as not viable if it doesn't make money, while cars seem to get a free pass on being financially sustainable...

It will probably never happen. It is so easy to park in this damn city and the traffic is non-existent. I have had more problems parking in cities like Portland Maine then in KCMO
