Has anyone used Enterprise and rented a car one way from St. Charles to Clinton? Suggestions on where to pick up and drop off, please, etc. I prefer this to a shuttle.

Amtrak River Runner Route....KC to St Louis. It doesn't go to Clinton, but it stops in Lees Summit. You could bike the Rock Island Trail down to the Katy. Or up. Note: The Rock Island is not 100% complete and requires a nine mile ride on mostly quiet streets and highways. There is a shoulder on the three mile stretch of 150 Highway.

I looked into this its expensive extra fees involved

Amtrak from Lee's Summit to Kirkwood is $36 in coach plus $10 for bicycle. Instead of going all the way to Clinton, turn right on the Rock Island Trail at Windsor and ride a similar distance to Pleasant Hill about 10 miles of mostly lightly traveled streets to Lees Summit. Car rental one way to a small town is probably more expensive. Hopefully you are able to break your bike down to fit in the rental. I suggest the various travel sites to research car prices and locations then compare locations in relationship to Katy Trail. You do what's right for you.

I don't know what Enterprise one way rentals are like these days but when I worked there They figured the cost of retrieving the car and returning to it's original location which made it impractically expensive. I think they have since worked on their systems to make it more practical, but you still would probably need to go to a location with a rental office. You could probably find out with a phone call or by trying to arrange a rental on their website. Google says they have an office in Clinton so there is hope. But I'd be shocked if it cost less than Amtrak.
