Times change for better transfers in Independence 

NEW SCHEDULE: Weekday - Saturday - Sunday - Map 

RideKC’s 24 Independence will change scheduled times on weekdays, effective Monday, Oct. 25. 24 will run every 20 minutes instead of every 15 minutes on weekdays. RideKC is rolling back some RideKC transit service due to staffing issues and the continuing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

24 will continue to run hourly between East Village Transit Center and Independence Transit Center.  However, weekday times will change to improve transfers at both transit centers.

All scheduled times on weekdays will change.

New schedules will be available on this page the week of Oct. 11. Printed bus schedules and maps are available by request only. They are not available on buses. You may request them via phone or email. Complete schedules are also available at and in the Transit app.
