Zoo Free Day on Dec. 30
METRO AND ZOO OFFER FREE SERVICE FOR ZOOLOGICAL DISTRICT FREE DAY ON MONDAY
(Kansas City, Mo. – Dec. 27, 2013) Metro customers can take The Metro’s 108-Indiana to the Kansas City Zoo this Monday, Dec. 30. The Metro will offer free, frequent service in conjunction with the Zoological District Free Day.
108-Indiana will offer service during the Zoo’s regular hours, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thanks to a special partnership between the Kansas City Zoo and Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA), it will be free to ride the 108 to and from the Kansas City Zoo during this time, as well. The 108 will have regular fares charged during the rest of the day.
The Zoological District Free Days are a “thank you” to all residents in Jackson and Clay counties for supporting the Kansas City Zoo through the Zoological District. Residents of Jackson and Clay County receive complimentary admission when showing a valid ID with their address in one of these two counties this Monday.
“The Free Days at the Zoo have been very popular,” said KCATA General Manager Mark Huffer. “Visitors will be able to ride The Metro to the zoo and not worry about finding a parking spot. We hope this makes for an even better zoo experience for the residents of the Zoological District.”
