RideKC Introduces New Mobile Flex App

Date:February 14, 2022

RideKC public outreach teams greeted customers onboard RideKC Flex vehicles and at transit centers on Valentine’s Day to share information about booking their Flex trips using the new mobile app, RideKC Flex.

Flex vehicles pick you up where you are and take you where you want to go within the boundaries of separate flex zones. Most Flex zones have a transit center or focal point where multiple bus routes meet for easy connections. All Flex services are currently zero fare.

Flex service operates at specific hours of the day and certain days of the week, depending on the zone. These five Flex zones can now be booked in the new RideKC Flex app:

  • 99 South Kansas City Flex – serves 3-Trails Transit Center
  • 297 Tiffany Springs Flex – serves Boardwalk Square Park & Ride
  • 298 North Kansas City Flex - serves bus stops along Burlington/MO-9, Armour Road, and Chouteau Trafficway
  • 299 Gladstone-Antioch Flex - serves Antioch Crossing
  • 399 Raytown Flex - serves 3-Trails Transit Center

These Flex services are operated by the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority and funded in cooperation with the cities of Kansas City, Mo., North Kansas City, Gladstone and Raytown.

The new RideKC Flex app, powered by Spare Labs, can be used for all Flex zones in Missouri. The new app allows customers to book and cancel trips, which was previously only offered by phone. Download the free RideKC Flex app in the Google Play and App Store.
