The 519 Olathe Express morning trip that leaves Strang Line Park and Ride at 6:50 a.m. and provides direct service to Crown Center is being modified to improve access to bus stops west of Crown Center. The current routing on Southwest Boulevard and 20th Street does not allow for bus stops to be installed and also causes slow travel.
Beginning Monday, May 20, the 519 Olathe Express trip leaving Strang Line Park & Ride at 6:50 a.m. and arriving at Pershing and Grand at 7:20 a.m. is being modified as follows: From Southwest Blvd. eastbound, the bus will turn south on Broadway, east on Pershing, and south on Grand to continue its current route.
This allows riders to use the following stops that are currently not served by this trip:
The bus stop on Grand at 22nd Street southbound will no longer be served by this trip. Riders using stops in Crown Center will not be impacted, except that travel time and schedule reliability should improve.
No other 519 Olathe Express trips are affected by this change.
