Map Series: VI. Second Most Used Transportation Mode for Commuting in Kansas City, After Cars
The map above shows the second most used transportation mode for commuting to work in the Kansas City area census tracts, after cars. As the map demonstrates, for much of the city and surrounding counties, working from home (or telecommuting) is the most used mode for commuting after cars. In much of the center west of the city and southern Clay County, transit is second most used. However, in the city’s downtown area, where transit is most abundant (and the streetcar is opening), the dominant mode of getting to work (after cars) is actually walking, not transit.
