Smart Moves 3.0 is the Kansas City region’s 20-year plan for transit and mobility. It builds on a solid foundation of prior planning, and prepares the region for greater choices in the transportation environment we currently live in — one that is rapidly evolving.

The Smart Moves 3.0 plan envisions a mobility landscape that includes efficient, high-ridership transit service linked by well-located mobility hubs where riders can transfer from one fixed route to another or connect with mobility services to get where they need to go. This plan also recognizes that efficient transit thrives on density.

PLAN VISION

The Smart Moves plan envisions a Kansas City region with viable mobility solutions for empowered residents, successful businesses and vibrant communities.
