App Center and Wi-Fi

These third-party applications can help you find information on the go. RideKC does not endorse, guarantee, sell or license these apps. We recommend reading reviews of the apps to determine if an app fits your needs. Some of the apps include only KCATA information, while others include multiple transit agencies. And if you know of an app that should be listed on this page, please email us at metro@kcata.org.

WiFi

WiFi is available on board several buses.  All Johnson County buses provide free WiFi. Main Street MAX and Troost MAX are also 100% WiFi equipped.  Several additional KCATA buses have WiFi.

In 2017, WiFi will be added to all KCATA vehicles. The KC Streetcar corridor has free WiFi along the 2.2 mile line in downtown Kansas City, Mo.
