Kansas Citians Call For Off-Hours Transit Options To Reduce Drinking And Driving

If Kansas City wants to get serious about reducing drunk driving, it needs to invest in more late-night and weekend public transportation services.

That’s according to your responses to our on-air and online question of the week.

We asked: What services should be provided to curb drinking and driving in Kansas City?

Some listeners called in suggestions for more education around driving while intoxicated, but by and large, the feedback we received on social media pointed to a need for more prevalent taxi services and more frequent bus services in the off hours — when drinking at bars occurs the most.

See the highlights from the online conversation below.
