Starting Tuesday, Jan. 3, RideKC will make changes in these Johnson County routes: 546 Johnson-Quivira, 660 Antioch-Olathe, 661 Olathe Xpress, 664 Metcalf-Downtown, 667 Nall, 672 JoCo to Downtown Mid-Day, 678 Shawnee Xpress, 673 South OP Xpress, and 670 Gardner-OP Xpress.
660 Antioch-Olathe, 661 Olathe Xpress, 664 Metcalf-Downtown, 670 Gardner-OP Xpress, 672 JoCo to Downtown Mid-Day, 673 South OP Xpress, and 678 Shawnee Xpress
The current reroute of these services to Oak Street in downtown Kansas City will remain permanent. A recent survey of riders showed that 71 percent favored keeping the route on Oak. Additionally, buses will travel on Broadway between 10th and 12th Streets instead of Central. Buses will follow the regular route to 12th and Washington, then east on 12th, north on Broadway, east on 10th, south on Oak, west on 18th and south on Grand to continue the regular route. The route is being moved to Broadway because conflicts with school traffic at 10th & Central. Also, Central will be converted to a two-way street in 2017, making it harder for transit to use.
Schedule for this route will be adjusted to improve on-time performance and ease transfers at Mission Transit Center. Some buses will now run five to 10 minutes earlier than the current schedule. Buses will no longer stop at the Johnson County Sunset Building in Olathe. New schedules are now available online at www.ridekc.org
The current reroute of the evening trips in downtown Kansas City will remain permanent. Evening buses will follow the same route as the morning buses downtown. Buses will travel the regular route to 12th and Washington, then east on 12th, north on Holmes, west on 11th, north on Locust, east on 10th, ending at 10th and Cherry before leaving downtown.
