Getting from Kansas City, MO, to Lawrence, KS

Hi guys,

Since I wasn't able to find any clear connection, let me ask you this. What would be the best/most economic way to get from Kansas City Megabus stop (which is somewhere here: https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=Unknown+road&daddr=Grand+Blvd,+Kansas+City,+MO&hl=en&sll=39.109934,-94.580875&sspn=0.002535,0.004823&geocode=FXrHVAIdG85c-g%3BFaSVVAId685c-inNayl1aPDAhzFViZiYQtvFsQ&oq=union&mra=mift&mrsp=0&sz=18&t=m&z=18) to Lawrence?

The Amtrak operates once daily in late evening so it's not an option. Going to MCI airport just to catch any direct bus/shuttle to Lawrence, KS, is not the best idea, too. Is there any bus/public transport service you know about from KC, MO, you might know about? I'd like to travel on a business day in the morning about 9-10 AM. Thanks for all ideas.

To take public transit you will need to take the Jo Suburban Bus from Downtown KC (10th and Main I believe)The total cost will be 5.75

I believe this bus will get you to KU Edwards campus jocogov.org/dept/…660-antioch-downtown

And this one will get you to Lawrence
