Join us in March to talk about North Oak

RideKC is studying transit on and along North Oak. Upcoming meetings will allow you to participate in the study and help shape the future of transit along the North Oak corridor.

The study will provide recommendations on how transit services can better serve the North Oak Corridor and surrounding neighborhoods from downtown Kansas City, through North Kansas City and Gladstone.

We will be providing information and seeking public comments during March 2019.

KCATA will hold four public input sessions. People can come and go at any time during the meeting and be able to see all of the information and provide feedback.

  • Tuesday, March 5, 1:30-3:30 p.m., Price Chopper, 4820 N. Oak Trafficway, Kansas City, Mo.
  • Tuesday, March 5, 4:30-7:30 p.m., North Kansas City YMCA, 1999 Iron Street, North Kansas City, Mo.
  • Saturday, March 9, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Gladstone Community Center, 6901 N. Holmes, Gladstone, Mo.
  • Saturday, March 9, 3:30-5:30 p.m., Gladstone Price Chopper, 500 NE Barry Rd, Kansas City, Mo.

Also, we encourage riders to provide feedback with an online survey: English - Spanish

The study will consider the feasibility of a MAX-level transit investment in the corridor. MAX is RideKC’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service that includes high service levels, increased rider amenities, and rail-like stations. The study will build on existing plans and policies to further land use and corridor development recommendations that would support a significant transit investment in the corridor.

The study team has developed three preliminary alternatives for fast and frequent service in the corridor. Preliminary alternatives are based on existing ridership and travel characteristics, corridor character, economic development potential, locally expressed desire, transit potential, cost and stakeholder input.

For more detailed information or to provide feedback, attend one of the meetings, call 816-346-0300, or email planning@kcata.org.
