The City Planning & Development Department’s Long Range Planning and Preservation staff is currently working to rewrite the Bike KC plan along with multiple city departments, partner organizations and community members. The rewrite is in response to the 2016 Bike KC Performance Audit released by the City Auditor’s Office in December, 2016. The purpose of this planning process is to establish a clear vision for bicycling in Kansas City, set specific goals and strategies, prioritize projects or project areas for the future, and to address funding and programmatic elements. The 2016 audit made 13 recommendations that the rewritten plan must address. They can be found on page 22 of the audit.
The goal for completion of the updated Bike KC plan is Spring of 2018.
Take the Bike KC Plan Online Survey – Please take a few moments to share your thoughts on bicycling in Kansas City, Missouri today and let us know which improvements the plan should address.

Previous Bike Plan Efforts
Kansas City is committed to improving its status as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. Public Works is coordinating with the City Manager’s office to move forward with several bikeway projects currently planned or already underway. The rewrite of the Bike KC plan is a chance to elevate the profile of the plan and ensure that Kansas City is improving the mobility of its citizens and visitors.
