Transit made easy with new RideKC campaign

The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority is introducing a new how-to-ride campaign that will make our transit system more friendly and inviting to the community.

New posters explaining how to ride in easy steps are going up at 40 different locations along popular bus routes such as Main Street MAX and Troost MAX.

Riders can find them at a variety of stops, including Union Station, the Country Club Plaza and Barney Allis Plaza, where there is heavy tourist traffic.

The signs— invaluable to out-of-town visitors — detail how you can ride our buses, whether it’s planning a trip, finding a route or paying at the fare box.

The posters are a new approach to presenting important rider information that has largely been confined to the inside of a bus or on the RideKC website.

The new signs stemmed from our outreach efforts teaching members of various community groups and businesses about how to ride the bus.

We are now following up with more information, sending out fliers to places such as the Ronald McDonald House and the University of Kansas Medical Center that are requesting bus route information specific to their location.

We believe these signs provide easy-to-use information that will increase everyone’s comfort with public transit. It’s riding made easy with RideKC.
