As a way to help our cyclists stay on the road and to encourage more people to pedal instead of drive, UMKC established, The Hub, an on-campus bike station located at 5030 Cherry. The Hub provides repair and maintenance for UMKC Clean Commute loaner bikes at no cost. UMKC students, staff and faculty may also visit The Hub to get a non-loner bike repaired, volunteer, or learn more about alternative transportation options around Kansas City.
