RideKC will temporarily roll back some RideKC transit service starting Monday, Nov. 23, due to the increasing community spread of COVID-19. KCATA is experiencing higher than normal staffing shortages among our operator workforce. RideKC transit should be used for essential trips only, effective immediately.
The following routes will be temporarily discontinued effective Nov. 23:
529 KCI Express Limited (New Schedule) will operate on a reduced schedule, effective Monday, Nov. 23. Northbound trips that will still operate are those trips starting at 5:07 a.m., 6:07 a.m., 11:37 a.m., 3:54 p.m., and 4:24 p.m. Southbound trips that will still operate are those trips starting at 5:56 a.m., 6:56 a.m., 12:26 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and 5:00 p.m.
These changes are designed to retain access to jobs, access to education, access to healthcare and equitable access for low-income residents who need it most.
Other routes will maintain their current schedule at this time.
