This paper reports upon current work in the Kansas City region on transit planning. Since 1992, the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) has been engaged in an Alternatives Analysis/DEIS study of the Southtown Corridor in Kansas City, Missouri. The study is nearing completion, and this paper presents certain aspects of the endeavor to ensure a full understanding by local citizens and decision makers of the alternatives and their consequences. The purpose of this paper is to portray a case study of how rail transit can be presented realistically to a region having a variety of concerns and questions about making capital investments.
