Kansas City’s Sprint Center Drives Area Limo Business Upward

KANSAS CITY — Downtown Kansas City is looking more and more profitable through a limo windshield and rearview mirrors, as chauffeured transportation companies deliver throngs of people to events at Sprint Center.

Businesses ranging from taxi companies to minicoach providers report that business has revved up more than 20% and that they're having to hire more drivers and buy new vehicles.

Completion of the $850 million, eight-block Kansas City Power & Light District, scheduled to have a grand opening in March, is expected to help sustain that growth and provide an added draw for conventions. But for area transportation companies, most growth will probably continue to be driven by the $276 million downtown arena, which opened Oct. 13.
