Two routes between Johnson County and Kansas City, Mo., will add evening service, beginning July 2, 2018. 401 Metcalf-Plaza and 475 Quivira-75th Street will both add two northbound and two southbound trips. These changes will improve access to jobs, education and shopping. Existing trip times will not change.
Both routes connect to other RideKC routes, including Main MAX and Troost MAX.

475 Quivira-75th Street destinations include KU Edwards Campus, Johnson County Community College, Overland Park Regional Medical Center, Oak Park Mall, Shawnee Mission Medical Center and Waldo.
The added times will be part of the Flex Route service: These trips are flex trips that will deviate within ¾ mile of the route in Johnson County to provide curb-to-curb service. The bus will still travel to all time points, but may flex between time points. Call 913.362.3500 at least one business day in advance to schedule a flex trip.
New schedules will be posted online by June 18. For route and schedule information, contact the Regional Call Center at 816.221.0660, weekdays from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
