NEW MAY 2: Residents in downtown Kansas City, Mo., and River Market will be able to travel to jobs near KU Medical Center, Hospital Hill, Union Station, and West 39th Street.
Bridj creates dynamic transit that makes it fast, easy and comfortable to move around the city. After downloading the app, customers simply plug in where they are and where they want to go, and the app produces a nearby rally point where riders meet the vehicle. RideKC: Bridj features a guaranteed seat, free Wi-Fi, no transfers and fewer stops along the way.
The app-based service area includes downtown Kansas City, River Market, Hospital Hill, Crown Center, portions of Midtown, University of Kansas Medical Center and the Historic 18th and Vine Jazz district. (See map below.)
Monday-Friday, 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
The introductory fare for the pilot program will be only $1.50, the same as a fare for the local RideKC bus service.
Free rides: RideKC: Bridj offers the first 10 rides for free with the promo code KCBRIDJ.
Download the app now from the Apple’s App Store or Google Play. Search for “Bridj” to find the app.
