MARC's Regional Climate Action Plan proposal would bring the Kansas City region to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Increasing public transportation options is one part of the plan.

Transportation, finance and building are some of the elements included in a master plan to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

The Regional Climate Action Plan was presented last month to the board of the Mid-America Regional Council. Involving five counties each in Kansas and Missouri, the proposal reveals an ambitious and multi-faceted plan.
