Johnson County and KCATA Hold Meetings About 2019 Service Changes
Kansas City, Mo. | Oct. 8, 2018 – Johnson County, Kan., and Kansas City Area Transportation Authority are conducting an analysis of all bus service in the county. KCATA and Johnson County will share recommended changes to bus routes at meetings in October 2018. The goals of this project are to improve transit service and efficiency, and to implement recommendations of Mid-America Regional Council’s SmartMoves 3.0 regional transit plan.
The operational analysis of bus service has resulted in a recommendation for service changes throughout the RideKC Johnson County system. These recommendations are summarized on the RideKC.org website http://ridekc.org/bulletins/joco_transit.
We will be seeking public comments on these recommendations during October 2018 at meetings and online. KCATA and Johnson County may adjust recommendations based on public comments and provide final routes and schedules in January 2019. The changes would take effect April 1, 2019.
