I'm going to Kansas City and St. Louis on the same trip in June. I'll arrive in Kansas City on Saturday morning for a Saturday afternoon game. Then I'll head to St. Louis for a Sunday afternoon game. The big problem for me is that there's only one airline that flies from Kansas City to St. Louis, Southwest. They only have one flight between the end of the Saturday game and the start of the Sunday game. It arrives in St. Louis at 12:25 PM, only 45 minutes before the first pitch. That could be cutting it a little tight.
Since I have so much time between the games I looked for alternatives. There's no Amtrak train. There is a bus, but it takes 5+ hours. Knowing buses, it'll probably take longer. I don't want that.
I thought of renting a car and driving, but found that the cost of renting a car at the Kansas City airport and returning it at the St. Louis airport would be three times the cost of flying. Ridiculous. Renting a car in downtown KC and returning it in St. Louis would be half that cost, but then I'd have to find a way to get to downtown KC.
So I'm not sure what to do. Thoughts?
