    Anybody commute in KC?

    Just curious. I ride the bus and occasionally bring my bike on it to ride to lunch or what have you. I am always on the lookout for people commuting. I typically see 2-3 people on Grand each day and was wondering if any were on here.

    There are few... check the SS forum as well. Lawrence represent here, although the good jobs are in your area...

    I'm a KCMO commuter. I live in Kansas City proper and work downtown, though. I ride downtown from the Old Northeast (that's not north of the river) every day. About 3.5 miles, so no biggie.

    I used to take Oak Street home when I lived in Westport, but 9th and 12th streets are the main component of my regular route nowadays, though sometimes I go home via Cliff Drive, if I am in the mood for a scenic route.
    Wheeeee!

    Cool! I wouldn't mind living in the area and commuting down there. I live in Overland Park and bring my bike on the bus. Today I rode from Crown Center to Westport and back to Hospital Hill for class. There is a bike locked up at Crown Center many days but I have never seen who rides it.

    I was commuting approximately 6 miles in Overland Park for a good portion of last year, although I never took the bus. Alas, my current assignment has me working from home... no commute for the foreseeable future.
