Parking, Transportation, Getting There and Such

Anyone who went to the Kansas City Royals World Series Championship parade in 2015 knows this isn’t going to be an easy process getting to and from the celebration.

The first hurdle is the weather. The forecast shows cool temperatures – you know, typical February weather in Kansas City. Just dress like you’re going to a game at Arrowhead. Chiefs fans are hearty Midwest stock. We can do this.

There will be a lot of street closures and delays before, during and after the parade.

KC Streetcar: The Kansas City Streetcar will suspend operation beginning at 12:01am on Wednesday, February 15 and will reopen as conditions allow. Ride KC bus operations for parade day will be free with very limited service. 

Paid Parking options are available at Crown Center, Union Station, National WWII Museum and Memorial. (this will fill up quickly – check their locations for costs)

KCATA: Park and Ride shuttles will run from 7:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m., and then again from 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.. Riders need to return to the drop off location for their specific shuttle. Please account for possible wait times at park and ride locations. Be prepared for a minimum of a 45 minute wait at popular locations.
