Keeping employers and commuters up to date

To keep employers and commuters up to date on the ever-changing transportation landscape in the Kansas City region, the Mid-America Regional Council produces the MobilityKC newsletter. This e-newsletter shares information about transit, telework, jobs access, employer transportation incentives and more. It was created through a partnership with RideKC, KC Streetcar, RideKC Bike, RideshareKC and RideKC Vanpool.
