Traveling across the country is easy if you own a vehicle but getting around isn’t impossible if you choose to forego owning a car. Many cities, like Kansas City, Missouri, offer plenty of methods of transportation. If owning a car isn’t for you, here’s a helpful layout of downtown Kansas City’s transportation options.
Most importantly and most recently, the brand new Kansas City Streetcar has opened! It is such a great asset to our ever-growing city. The details of the streetcar’s routes and times can be found here. It’s free to ride and definitely worth checking out next time your downtown!
If you’re planning on traveling long distances, the Kansas City International Airport is streamlined to provide the best service possible. With flights leaving and landing at the airport on a daily basis, getting to your destination is easy.
Like most other major cities, Kansas City also had a public bus system that makes stops around the city multiple times a day. With the addition of the new bus rapid transit line, getting to places like River Market, Crown Center, and the Plaza is faster than ever.
One of the newest methods of getting around is B-Cycle, a fully automated and self-service bike sharing system. Stations are spread through Kansas City and the River Market area. With a swipe of your membership or credit card, the bike is unlocked for you. To return the bike once you get to your destination, just dock it at the nearest kiosk.
