Riding the bus in Kansas City
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.
Kansas City Today is hosted by Nomin Ujiyediin. It is produced by Byron Love, Trevor Grandin, and KCUR Studios and edited by Gabe Rosenberg and Lisa Rodriguez.
