Helpful links for bicycle commuters

This is being posted in advance of my appearance on KCUR's Up To Date radio show in a little more than an hour. I may add more stuff here over the next couple of hours.

Shameless Plugs:
While I mostly use this place to share my pictures and carry on and on about my personal adventures in getting around the Greater Kansas City Area, I do actually have some useful information for bicycle commuters here:


Multi-Mode commuting using your bicycle and transit

  • Google Transit maps - get transit schedules and route suggestions. In Kansas City, only works with KCATA's Metro and MAX buses.
  • KCATA - Kansas City Metro and MAX information, schedules and route maps.
  • The JO - Johnson County Transit bus information, schedules and route maps.
  • TARC Bike Rack Rap - Humorous informational video of how to put your bike on the bus. The racks shown in the video are the same used on all MAX, Metro and The JO buses.
  • MARC Guaranteed Ride Home - Bus riders, bicycle commuters and car-poolers can sign up for RideShare, which entitles you two two free taxi rides home in certain emergency situations. This alleviates the "what if" worry for many car-free commuters.

Dude, it was excellent hearing you on the radio yesterday -- you give a fine interview, very sharp on your feet, and well spoken. I enjoyed it, all the panel members were superb, and I think a positive message was put out there. I was even surprised about the number of NON-cyclists that called in with legitimate questions and kind comments. Surprising, and maybe a sign on a turning tide? good stuff!

I'm only sharp on my feet because a lot of the questions they asked were the same ones my cow-orkers ask all the time. Why is "what if it rains?" such a popular question? Everyone laughed at my answer, though. That's a reflex answer. I didn't even think. I was sooo ready for that question.
