RideKC Freedom Changes for COVID-19

Date:May 06, 2020
Effective:May 15, 2020

RideKC Freedom paratransit is making changes in response to current local conditions around COVID-19.

Effective May 15, all customers must make reservations 48 hours in advance, instead of 24 hours in advance. RideKC is making this change to accommodate more trips as the region lifts more stringent travel restrictions. This will allow us to limit the number of passengers per vehicle and allow for as much distance as possible between drivers and riders. There may be multiple riders per vehicle.

All passengers are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings, such as a mask or bandana, to reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

RideKC Freedom On-Demand will have a limit of 200 trips per day, first come, first served. Use cloth face coverings in Freedom On-Demand vehicles.

RideKC Freedom will continue to take these important safety steps to keep vehicles clean:

  • Cleaning or spraying disinfectant between passengers
  • Drivers wear cloth face coverings
  • All vehicles get a deep cleaning every night
