Phase 1: Review of Existing Transit Services and Initial Public Outreach 

RideKC Next is reviewing the purpose and performance of all existing transit services in KCMO. This includes:

  • an analysis of transit operations,
  • consideration of new mobility options,
  • identification of key choices, and
  • public engagement and outreach, including an online survey. (Now closed.)

Information gathered throughout the process will guide the design of an updated transit service and network plan that more accurately reflects the values of Kansas City, Mo. communities.

Phase 2 and 3: Draft and Final Plan 

Based on what we hear now, we will prepare a Draft Plan this summer.

We’ll be presenting the Draft Plan for public feedback in the fall, and that feedback will be taken into consideration when crafting the Final Plan. The KCATA Board of Commissioners will review and approve a Final Plan. The Final Plan will include meaningful improvements to the transit system that can be made in the next two years.
