Kansas City, Mo. -  The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) anticipates the forecasted snow and ice storm may cause hazardous travel conditions and affect our transit service during the Friday evening rush hour and on Saturday.

Based on when the storm hits, there could be potential for service suspensions. This could impact the availability of afternoon commuter express trips, as well as all other service. Paratransit service will likely be affected and customers may want to consider rescheduling non-essential trips.
