The entrance to I-70 East at 10th Street and Wannamaker (by the Burger King and Super 8) is an ideal place to catch rides going to Lawrence and all points east. Be aware that it is hard for people to see you on this weird shaped ramp so a big sign saying KC or Lawrence would be helpful.

Topeka is the capital city of Kansas in the United States. This little but sprawled city is situated at the junction of major highways including the Kansas Turnpike.

Law

This excerpt is from the Standard Traffic Ordinances of Kansas Cities book which Topeka has adopted as of 2010: Sec. 69. Pedestrians Soliciting Rides or Business.

(a) No person shall stand upon or along a street or highway for the purpose of soliciting a ride.

I have hitchhiked through Topeka holding my thumb out to dozens of cops and they haven't seemed to mind much, just understand that it is technically illegal.

Hitchhiking out

West to Salina and Colorado

East to Lawrence and Kansas City

The entrance to I-70 East at 10th Street and Wannamaker (by the Burger King and Super 8) is an ideal place to catch rides going to Lawrence and all points east. Be aware that it is hard for people to see you on this weird shaped ramp so a big sign saying KC or Lawrence would be helpful.

North to Nebraska

Southwest to Wichita and Oklahoma
