Greater Kansas City Regional Bikeway Plan is available online
The MARC Board adopted the Kansas City Regional Bikeway Plan in 2015. The bikeway plan, when completed, would create a network of on- and off-road facilities for bicycle riders that crosses multiple cities and counties in the bistate region. The plan creates a network of more than 2,000 miles and works to promote active transportation and mobility choices for residents.

The Quad States American Planning Association (APA) conference, the Mid-America Regional Council’s Planning Sustainable Places (PSP) program was honored with two awards: the Missouri chapter’s Outstanding Public Outreach, Program, Project, Tool, Community Initiative Award, and the Kansas chapter’s Pioneer Award for urban areas.
The PSP program was recognized for its wide-reaching planning and implementation activities, which help local governments make progress toward the region’s long-range transportation and placemaking goals.The PSP program promotes concepts for more livable and sustainable communities — vibrant places that offer a mix of housing, employment and other uses; connected places with a variety of transportation choices; and green places that support healthy living and a natural environment.
