KC Critical Mass - Monthly Bicycling Event
One way to measure a city’s walkability is its WalkScore, which gauges how easy it is to go without a car in specific neighborhoods, and even addresses, in a city. For example, Kansas City, MO’s overall Walk Score is a 38 out of 100, which ranks it 43rd among large metros and qualifies it as "car-dependent." That said, there are many neighborhoods in the city that rank very, very highly: Old Westport, for example, leads with 92/100, earning it "Walker’s Paradise" status. The Country Club Plaza (90), Crown Center (87), Central Business District/Downtown (86), and Hanover Place (85) also rate very highly.
