MARC recognizes the important role that bicycling and walking play in the Kansas City region’s total transportation system. As our local transportation needs continue to grow, MARC promotes walking and bicycling as healthy, environmentally friendly modes of transport.
Walking and bicycling are fundamental outdoor activities which both support and are supported by the MetroGreen regional greenway plan.
MARC promotes walking and bicycling in the urban environment through AirQ as alternative transportation modes that help address air quality issues, and through its Creating Sustainable Places initiative to foster sustainable communities.
In addition, MARC supports walking and bicycling through the Transit-Supportive Development initiative focused on finding the proper mix and density of land use to support the region's transit system and to create urban and suburban environments where walking, biking and transit are viable transportation options.
