RideKC Shows Love to RideKC Flex Customers with New App

Posted on: Feb 23, 2022

RideKC public outreach teams will be onboard RideKC Flex vehicles and at transit centers Monday to share information with customers about booking their trips using the new mobile app, RideKC Flex.

Flex vehicles pick you up where you are and take you where you want to go, unlike traditional bus service that only makes stops along a fixed route. All Flex trips must be booked within the boundaries of separate service zones. Customers can connect to other RideKC bus routes to travel throughout the region. Each Flex zone has a transit center or focal point where multiple bus routes come together for easy connections. All Flex services are currently zero fare.

Flex service operates at specific hours of the day and certain days of the week, depending on the zone. These five Flex zones can now be booked in the new RideKC Flex app:

99 South Kansas City Flex – serves 3-Trails Transit Center

297 Tiffany Springs Flex – serves Boardwalk Square Park & Ride

298 North Kansas City Flex - serves bus stops along Burlington/MO-9, Armour Road, and Chouteau Trafficway

299 Gladstone-Antioch Flex - serves Antioch Crossing

399 Raytown Flex - serves Blue Ridge Crossing and 3-Trails Transit Center

These Flex services are operated by the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority and funded in cooperation with the cities of Kansas City, North Kansas City, Gladstone, and Raytown.

Introducing the RideKC Flex App

The new RideKC Flex app, powered by Spare Labs, can be used for all Flex zones in Missouri. The new app allows customers to book and cancel trips, which was previously only offered by phone. Download the free RideKC Flex app in the Google Play and App Store.
