Updated July 2021: In April 2020, routes in Johnson County moved to a reduced daily schedule in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These changes remain in effect in response to current ridership levelsm while maintaining access to essential businesses and services. RideKC in Johnson County is currently updating its Comprehensive Operations Analysis from 2019. This study will help better align services to the transit market impacts felt from the pandemic on current and future transit ridership demand. Results will be implemented in 2022 and bus routes will change at that time.
Please note: Service in Kansas City, Mo., and other communities is also being temporarily reduced. See a Rider Bulletin for details on those changes.
