The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) has initiated one of the largest system redesigns – RideKC Next – in the agency’s history.

RideKC Next – Take the Survey
The RideKC Next system redesign includes an analysis of current transit operations’ efficiency and effectiveness, consideration of new mobility options, a look at public/private partnership opportunities, and public outreach and engagement.
RideKC Next has three steps. Step one is to review existing transit service and conduct initial public outreach. The Pop-up meetings and an online survey are vital to this process. Residents can take the survey in English or Spanish at ridekcnext.org through July. The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
Step two is presenting the draft plan and seeking additional public comment.
Step three is submitting the final plan to KCATA for review and approval by the Board of Commissioners.
