New Late-Night Service Coming to Main Street MAX
Starting Friday, May 13, late-night service will be introduced on Main Street MAX, one of Kansas City’s premier bus rapid transit routes connecting to the new downtown streetcar.
The expanded bus service will now be available until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights. It will parallel the operations for the downtown streetcar, which also stops running at 2 a.m.
The last Main Street MAX bus currently leaves downtown at 11:37 p.m. on Friday and 12:06 a.m. on Saturday. It operates from 3rd & Grand downtown to 74th Terrace & Broadway in Waldo.
Riders catching the southbound bus at Union Station after midnight must board on the northbound side of the street across from the downtown streetcar platform. And some late-night northbound trips into downtown will not go farther than Union Station. Please see the online schedules or information at the stops for more detailed information. New schedules will not be printed at this time, but updated information is available at [url=http://www.ridekc.org]http://www.ridekc.org[/url] and in the Google Maps trip planner.
Expanded night service will improve better access to jobs in the downtown area, the Westport entertainment district, the Crossroads area and the Country Club Plaza.
It also will offer enhanced transit connections for out-of-town visitors and help riders easily transfer between buses and the streetcar.
More late-night bus service is coming in July when the hours are expanded for Troost MAX and 47-Broadway.
