Coming in 2017, KCATA will launch a new, app-based transportation option that gives riders more control over their travel. This pilot will cover a limited service area in the Kansas City region.
In addition to scheduled trips that have been booked through Share-A-Fare, eligible customers will now have the option of booking an on-demand trip with a smartphone.
In the one-year pilot program, customers have a new smartphone, app-enabled option for travel. Instead of traditional minibuses or sedans that have been used by Share-A-Fare, paratransit uses will have the option of using a smartphone app to get a taxi instead. Trips can be booked the same day, without the 24-hour advance notice that was required with Share-A-Fare.
The existing scheduled Share-A-Fare services will remain in place under the RideKC Freedom name. You can still book all trips by calling 816-842-9070.
Check back at this page later this year for more details as RideKC Freedom On-Demand becomes available.
