Riding the bus in Kansas City

kansas_city_today_pod_cover.jpg

Kansas City's need for more robust, user-friendly transit has been a major talking point for years. But the city was built for cars, and getting around using anything other than a personal automobile requires a special kind of effort.

Despite being designed for cars, Kansas City is home to people who rely on the bus every day. KCUR's Gina Kaufmann spent a day riding along with Richard Heimer, a person who relies on the city’s buses for his commute, to learn what's working and what's not in our public transit system.
