March 11 Update: The survey deadline has been extended to March 31.
RideKC released a draft plan of the RideKC Next system redesign and invites citizens to give their thoughts about the proposed changes in an online survey. The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) redesign is one of the largest system redesigns in the agency’s history. The redesign evaluated every bus route in the system to come up with a draft plan created from direct engagement with stakeholders and the community’s responses to the summer 2019 survey.
The draft plan proposes more fast and frequent service, more frequent weekend routes and better East-West connectivity. RideKC wants to hear from you! You can take the online survey about the draft plan at ridekcnext.org. Request a paper copy by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 816-346-0300.
Survey responses will be used to craft the final plan which will be submitted to the KCATA Board of Commissioners for approval in late summer. The changes will go into effect in the fall.
