Welcome to WTS Greater Kansas City!

The Kansas City area has long been a transportation hub, stemming from its days as the starting point of the Pony Express and its role in the expansion of America’s railroads. Today, the greater Kansas City metropolitan area is home to dozens of engineering firms, Class I railroads and a growing logistics community. On December 18, 2013, Kansas City became home to the 50th WTS chapter. Thank you to all of our founding members and several local companies for your help in bringing WTS to Kansas City.

We invite you to join us as we support the advancement of women in transportation across both sides of the state line. If you have any questions about WTS or would like to join us in our future planning efforts, please do not hesitate to contact us at wtskansascitychapter@gmail.com
