This is all great input. I may bite the bullet the first year to save for a car. That way I'll only be limited to certain neighborhoods the first year. After that, KC is mine!

I'm not exactly sure. They are about to move to a bigger office, so I don't know yet where in KC I'll be working.

Hopefully somewhere near the Orange Line.

OP: please disregard this semi-snarky post which is mostly a joke aimed towards the regulars on this board.

Given that Cerner keeps expanding and is drawing thousands from outside KC, am guessing them and could be the new KCK site, which is way out there. There is a bus line that goes out there from downtown KCMO but it takes a while. If the case, might want a car in the end but bus is doable to that site.

Just speculating but Cerner KCK site is at the W end of this bus line...

Well not just necessarily Kansas -- there are plenty of places in the metro his company could move to that would make a commute by bus at the least wildly inefficient and annoying if not entirely impossible. The same can be said for Chicago as well of course.

I was thinking it was a DISTINCT possibility that the employer could be setting up shop in a place not readily accessible by bus line.

Not a problem.

I'll try to pinpoint where exactly are they now and where and when will they be moving. Without these two answers you guys are pretty much blind trying to guess if it is possible at all to depend on the bus entirely.

Got it. They are now located somewhere called Crossroads, near Broadway St., south of the Power and Light District.

I noticed that only bus route 173 serves that area. What do you guys think about it now?

If you're off of Broadway there will be many routes that run within a couple of blocks of that spot -- the 173 doesn't ring any bells (are you sure that's right?) The 47 or the Max should both be doable.

You could live in the Crossroads itself, an artsy neighborhood with renovated lofts, or options discussed earlier that would make sense are Westport or Downtown. Grocery shopping in the Crossroads without a car would require a bus ride, but would be doable, but if I were going to be without a car the Crossroads might feel a bit empty to me. I still vote Westport for sure.
