Kenny Be's Comic Colfax: A Strip Down Memory Lane (pt. 3)

     In 2010, Denver city planners decided that reintroducing streetcars to Colfax Avenue would help commercial development and began a feasibility study. I suggested then – and still agree now – that the reintroduction of streetcars is guaranteed to reduce automobile congestion and invigorate redevelopment on East Colfax Avenue! Especially if the project is built as a public/private partnership that includes the use of seven "Hopper" trolleys that promote Colfax business interests...

      As shown above, the addition to announcing the streets, the driver of the "Bar Hopper" Trolley will also call out the names (and drink special!) of sponsoring bars. The "Table Hopper" trolley will identify restaurants and cafes, while medical marijuana (and eventually cocaine) dispensaries will be announced on the "4-Mile High Hopper" trolley.---Kenny Be
