BikeWalkKC is your voice for better walking and bicycling, but we need your help to speak up for your own community. Find an opportunity below, and be sure to join our Advocacy Mailing List to be notified about developments in your own community.


Broadway Bridge - the next new Missouri River bridge will be a key connection for walking and biking. Many people already risk their lives to walk on it. Let's give them a safe place.

Streetcars and Bikes - Frequently Asked Questions about bike safety and acces around the streetcard starting line coming to Main Street in Downtown KCMO.

Armour Boulevard Traffic and Parking Study - Armour Boulevard is the site of KCMO"s first sharrows, and it has great potential to be a Complete Street with a road diet, crosswalks, bike lanes, or even cycletrack!
