Last month, RideKC hosted an open house for customers, downtown residents, business owners and stakeholders, focused on improvements coming to downtown as part of the Prospect MAX project. Watch the video to see where we’re headed in downtown and along Prospect.
At the open house, people were able to look at our concepts and ask questions. For those not able to attend the meeting or those still thinking about what they learned at the meeting, materials are provided below.

New station design
The new Prospect MAX stations will be designed for speedy boarding and will feature state-of-the-art technology. Level boarding at the stations, similar to the streetcar stations, will put the curb even with the floor of the bus. That means safer, faster boarding for everyone, especially people using wheelchairs or walkers. The technology will also include smart kiosks, WiFi, and ticket vending machines at many stations.
East Village Transit Center
A mobility hub will be built at 12th and Charlotte. Key features of the hub are a covered passenger pavilion, pass sales and ticket vending machine, security presence, bike parking and bike share, and real-time arrival information.
