(Kansas City, Mo. – Feb. 2, 2015) The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) will host several public meetings during the week of Feb. 9 to discuss proposed changes to the application process for Share-A-Fare paratransit service.

Customers and stakeholders are invited to attend one of the following meetings to learn more about the new process:

The meetings will consist of a 30-40-minute presentation followed by an opportunity for questions and comments. During the two-hour meetings, the presentation will be repeated at the beginning of the second hour.

In response to public meetings last year, KCATA has designed a more thorough application instead of establishing in-person interviews for determining eligibility for paratransit service. The process should ensure the most appropriate mode of transportation for all, with fairness and compliance with ADA regulations.

Customers who are unable to attend a public forum can also submit comments on the proposed changes through:
