"Subways, a revised Chastain plan - the city's light-rail tangle just got more complex, and definitely more interesting."

"As the city prepares to dive back this week into coming up with a light-rail proposal, the past week showed just how wide open the city's transit future has become."

"Light-rail activist Clay Chastain updated his compromise plan - and offered not to sue the city if the Kansas City Council places a compromise version of his plan before voters in April."

"What's more, an entirely new idea about building a rail transit system emerged last week: tunneling to create a subway system of fast heavy-rail cars."
