MARC is within walking distance of many bus routes that serve downtown Kansas City. The building is most directly served by the Metro's Route 106 (Quindaro), which travels on Broadway in front of the building.

MARC is just a block away from the Eighth Street and Broadway B-cycle station. B-cycle is a bike sharing system that allows you to check out a bicycle from docking stations currently throughout downtown Kansas City, Mo.

Walk

Whether you're walking in from the bus or walking from a nearby location, MARC is easily accessible by walking. It is easier to cross Broadway at Seventh Street rather than going to Sixth Street.

Although the building address is 600 Broadway, the main entrances do not face Broadway. Ground-level entrances are on the north (facing the highway) and west (facing the parking garage) sides of the building. A second floor entrance directly into the MARC lobby is connected to the upper level of the parking ramp. Stairs up to this entrance are on the west side of the building. If you are attending an evening or weekend event in the MARC Conference Center, you should enter through this entrance from the upper parking ramp.
