Kansas City Transportation History Hike

June 22 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$10 – $30

Kansas City has a rich transportation history. From the Hopewell, Mississippi, Kansas Osage, Otos and Missouria people who first called this land home and relied on the region’s waterways to the French fur traders who established the first white settlements along the Missouri River and eventually, expansion and development that brought new bridges, roadways and industry, this region has long been defined as a place of movement.  

Join WAY TO GO and Urban Hikes KC for a walking tour tracing the region’s transportation history. The four-mile urban hike will take participants from the Town of Kansas Bridge in the River Market neighborhood to Union Station. Hikers will travel through Downtown, Quality Hill and the Crossroads neighborhoods on foot to learn about:  

  • People that shaped the city’s design and transportation systems  
  • Stories behind bridges, roads, and notable infrastructure projects  
  • Development of the city’s streetcar system and bus lines  
  • How the automobile transformed the region, for better and for worse  

Participants will also hear about what’s in store for the future of transportation in the region and how understanding our region’s history can better prepare us for tomorrow.

Tickets are $10 for WAY TO GO users and $30 for the general public. To gain access to the discount, log in or create an account on the WAY TO GO app and find the promo code in the Rewards dashboard.
