RideKC will make the following service changes starting Sunday, Jan. 7. The changes are being made to improve service.

11 Northeast-Westside: As part of a pilot program, new weekday service will be extended to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan. It will no longer end at 31st Street and Southwest Boulevard. The service will run every 30 minutes from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and hourly from 7 p.m. to midnight. The new service gives riders a direct trip from downtown Kansas City, Mo. and the Northeast Neighborhood to the medical center. The route will travel along Southwest Boulevard to Rainbow Boulevard and the medical center. Inbound tips will loop around medical center, going east on 39th Street, south on State Line Road, west on Olathe Boulevard and north on Rainbow to resume the route. Weekday, Saturday and Sunday schedules will also be adjusted by several minutes to improve on-time performance.

24 Independence: The route will be changed because the bus stop on Grand Boulevard at 11th Street was moved to the southwest corner of the intersection from the northwest corner to adjust for new bike lanes. The route will continue to travel south on Grand but will go west on 13th Street, then north on Baltimore to the 10th and Main Transit Center. New service will stop on the southbound side of 11th and Grand and at midblock on the southbound side of 12th and Grand. The route will no longer serve the stop at Petticoat and Main.

Route will travel south on Blue Ridge, left into transit center, then east on Bannister Road before resuming regular route on Blue Ridge.
