Main MAX reduced due to COVID impact

Date:September 30, 2021
Effective:Oct 24, 2021

NEW SCHEDULE: Weekday - Saturday - Sunday - Map 

Effective Sunday, Oct. 24, Main MAX will travel between downtown, the Plaza and Waldo every 30 minutes instead of every 15 minutes on weekdays and Saturdays. Times will change on Sundays, and the route will continue to run every 30 minutes on Sundays. RideKC is rolling back some transit service due to staffing issues and the continuing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

All Main MAX trips will travel between 3rd & Grand and Waldo. Times for all trips will change.

New schedules will be available on this page the week of Oct. 11. The maps and timetable will reflect the new times and the current reroute on Broadway. This will also be reflected in RideKC’s official app Transit starting Oct. 24. Printed bus schedules and maps are available by request only. They are not available on buses. You may request them via phone or email.
