Kansas City, Mo. | Nov. 8, 2018 - The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) is prepared for winter! The forecast for Thursday evening through Friday predicts some snowfall that may affect travel. RideKC maintenance crews are ready to start salting, if necessary. While snow amounts are expected to be small, if the temperatures fall below freezing, untreated roads and sidewalks may become slick. RideKC plans to provide bus service throughout the snow event. However, road conditions or heavy traffic could delay buses.
Tips for the Road: We encourage customers to dress warmly, listen to local newscasts for up-to-date information, and use the online tools to learn if their bus is delayed.
Online, customers can get updates at www.RideKC.org and review the Snow Plan, which pinpoints several areas that experience difficult travel in snowy weather. RideKC also distributes notices about system-wide delays through Twitter. Customers can follow RideKC at Twitter and Facebook.
