RideKC has launched a new route to help get workers to the new KCI Airport Terminal.
The new 529 KCI Express Limited route provides service directly to the site of the new terminal from downtown Kansas City’s new East Village Transit Center at 12th & Charlotte with one stop at the Boardwalk Square Park & Ride off of I-29 and NW Barry Road. The route stops at the KCI job site, Terminal B and Terminal C.
The 529 KCI Express Limited service operates Monday through Friday with northbound service to the job site leaving the East Village Transit Center at 6 a.m. Southbound service will leave KCI at 3:45 p.m. and return to downtown by 4:30 p.m.
The fare for the route is $1.50 regular fare and $0.75 for reduced fare.
New schedules are available at RideKC.org and in schedule racks. The route is supported by a partnership with Edgemoor and Clark-Weitz-Clarkson.
Service between downtown and KCI is also available on the 229 Boardwalk-KCI.
