Travel Information Centers
Kansas Travel Information Centers
The Division manages two state travel information centers (TIC). The Goodland TIC is located at I-70 East Milepost 7. The Belle Plaine TIC is located on the turnpike 10 miles south of Wichita.
TIC staff greet over 200,000 visitors annually. Tourism communities, attractions and visitor services are promoted at the TICs. Using printed promotional materials, backlits, and community showcase and refreshment host activity, the staff will engage the visitor in conversation to encourage them to extend their travel days in Kansas.
TIC staff also assists the visitor with travel directions, road conditions, and lodging reservations. Computers are available for visitors to access TravelKS.com.
Over 400 tourism travel guides, brochures, and rack cards are approved for distribution through our state managed TICs. We have 8 backlit spots at the Goodland TIC and 16 backlit spots at the Belle Plaine TIC. The backlits provide additional exposure for communities who participate in this program. Both TICs promote individual communities through our Community Showcase Program. The Goodland TIC provides an additional marketing opportunity through the Refreshment Host Program.

Community Travel Information Centers
Kansas has 18 community travel information centers that participate in the Division's Community Travel Information Center Program C-TIC. There are three levels of participation. Highway signage for a Level I C-TIC is approved through this program. Each C-TIC is promoted through the Division's travel guide map, on our consumer website, and when appropriate in other marketing activities. Community Travel Information Centers partner with the Division to promote travel in Kansas through National Tourism Week activities and other marketing efforts.
You may view a list of C-TICs here: community-owned centers.
