Open Roads, Easy Commutes
"Here, it’s just twenty minutes to anywhere." That’s the local phrase that accurately describes a trip across town. In fact, average commute times are short— about 19 minutes, which is 25% less than the national average.
Public transportation options include city buses operated by Wichita City Transit and the popular Q-Line, a free trolley operating in downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods. Bike Share ICT makes rentable bikes available from stations concentrated in the city core to key suburban sites. And Wichita is an Uber-and Lyft-friendly community.
Kansas’s largest airport is located here. Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport offers flights through seven major airlines and features 12 non-stop locations. The airport’s code, ICT, is a common nickname for the city. A new modern terminal and concourse opened in 2015 and celebrates Wichita’s famed aviation history. For convenient private, business and charter travel the Col. James Jabara Airport (AAO) is located at East Wichita’s Business Air Center.
