If you’re heading to a sports event, special bus routes are put in place to shuttle fans to the sports grounds easily. The KC Streetcar is free to ride and makes 16 stops across the 3,5 km (2,2 miles) route along Main Street that connects the River Market to Union Station/Crown Center. There are also several convenient bus routes.
