Kansas City Transport


Hiring a car is the most popular and convenient means of getting around Kansas City. Traffic is seldom too congested and parking is plentiful. At least 20 taxi companies operate in the city and wider region so it is possible to get around by taxi, but this can prove expensive. Kansas City is steadily developing cycling lanes and tracks and hiring a bicycle is a fun option in the downtown area. Public transportation is of limited use to visitors as it is designed for commuters: the Metro Area Express (MAX) bus service operates seven days a week in Kansas City, with some routes operating from around 5am to 1am; adult bus fare starts from $1.50.
