Fare Increase for Johnson County Micro Transit

Date:December 18, 2023
Effective:Jan 01, 2024

Based on a review of the current ridership trends, the 2024 program budget, increasing ridership demands and service efficiency, the Board of County Commissioners has authorized Johnson County Transit to implement a fare increase to the Johnson County micro transit service. This fare increase will be effective January 1, 2024.

Johnson County Micro Transit is an app-based premium service that uses on-demand dynamic routing – an affordable ride-hailing option to assist in making connections to the larger fixed express and commuter bus routes, all throughout the Johnson County service area, and the greater Kansas City metropolitan area.  It is designed to expand connectivity and fill gaps. 

“Johnson County is committed to providing efficient and reliable transportation services to our community, and we continuously evaluate ridership and efficiency of dollars spent,” said Mike Kelly, Chair of the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners. “The board has given staff direction to embark on a strategic plan for long-range transit services, and in the interim, we believe this new fare structure will remain extremely competitive with other services while also making micro transit more reliable and consistent.”

The fee changes are as follows:

Current fares (flat rate) - $3 or $5 fare each way, depending on the zone

New fare (with a base rate, plus miles) - $5 for the first five miles, $2 per mile for miles 5.1 and beyond.

The service area and hours of service will remain the same, Sunday through Saturday, 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
