Getting Around Wichita is a Breeze
Due to the spread-out nature of the Wichita metro area, you’ll most likely need car transportation for your commute. Although public bus service is available and has improved greatly in recent years, it’s generally limited in reach.
In recent years Wichita has made considerable efforts to become bike-friendly. Designated bike lanes run throughout the downtown and neighboring areas. Wichita also features a sprawling network of over 60 miles of recreational bike paths including beautiful scenic byways around the region. For those traveling throughout the downtown area, the Q-Line Trolley provides free service.
A brand new airport, Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower International Airport, was built in 2015. Nonstop flights are offered to popular destinations like Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago and more.
Ground transport is available by charter bus companies like Greyhound and for those who prefer rail, Amtrak has a station in the neighboring city of Newton.
Average commute time in Wichita? Less than 20 minutes – one of the best in the country.
