RideKC’s newest MAX line is almost ready to roll. Prospect MAX will start on Monday, Dec. 9.
Prospect MAX will offer frequent service, upgraded MAX vehicles, traffic signal priority and fewer stops for faster service. Level boarding at several high ridership stops will also help people get on and off the bus more easily and more quickly. The new Prospect MAX stations will include touchscreen technology and free WiFi while you wait for your MAX. And we’ve built and repaired more than 40,000 feet of sidewalks along the route.
Prospect MAX will travel from 75th Street to downtown. The 75th & Prospect Transit Center at Alphapointe will open Dec. 9, and the East Village Transit Center will open in 2020.
Stay tuned to RideKC’s social media for an announcement of a community kick-off event in December! Find us at @RideKC on Instagram and Facebook, or at @RideKCTransit on Twitter.
