RideKC Readies For Storm
(Kansas City, Mo. – Jan. 13, 2017) RideKC is preparing for winter weather that may affect travel this weekend, Friday, Jan. 13, through Sunday, Jan. 15.
Our crews, along with state and local governments, have been pre-treating roads for the last two days. They will continue working through the weekend to keep streets safe.
Once the ice storm starts, we encourage people to stay home if possible. If people must travel, 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.
RideKC bus customers can keep informed about current conditions and any changes to transit service:
- Social media: www.twitter.com/RideKCTransit and www.facebook.com/RideKCTransit
- Regional Call Center will be open until 7 p.m. on Friday at 816-221-0660
RideKC service operated by KCATA offers real-time bus information through WebWatch. Customers can find their individual routes and see where buses are on a real-time map at http://ridekc.org/rider-guide/track-your-bus. A mobile version from a third-party software designer is available at http://itsab.us/tracker/.
Additionally, Warming Buses will be available on Saturday, Jan. 14:
- 10th & Main, Kansas City, Mo., beginning at 6 a.m.
