On January 30, 2020, the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners authorized a public comment process for possible adjustments to the RideKC in Johnson County fixed route transit system. This survey offers you the opportunity to share your feedback with county staff about the proposed changes, which are described below. You can see a map of the proposed changes here, and if you have questions about these changes, you can email staff directly at Transit.Comment@jocogov.org

Background information on proposed fixed route changes:

401 Metcalf-Plaza: The southern segment of the route would be modified. Service to Prairiefire (137th & Outlook) would be discontinued due to low ridership (approximately seven riders per day) and cost of service. Instead, the southern terminus of the route would alternate between Johnson County Community College and Rosana Square. This allows for the addition of midday and evening service to JCCC. In addition, trips will be added to extend the “peak” periods of the route where service operates at 30-minute frequency. View a draft schedule here.
 
402 Johnson-Quivira: This route, which averages fewer than 70 riders a day, is being considered for elimination, with some segments of the route being combined with the 403 Antioch-Olathe.
 
403 Antioch-Olathe: Route would be modified to serve portions of the existing 402 Johnson-Quivira. The number of trips and the frequency of service will not change, but the schedule would be adjusted to accommodate the new segments of the route. In addition, the portion of the route in downtown Kansas City would be modified to serve the new East Village Transit Center at 12th & Charlotte when this facility opens in summer 2020. Direct service to Crown Center and Union Station would be discontinued, with multiple other routes providing transfers to these locations. View a draft schedule here.
 
475 Quivira-75th Street: The route would be extended to 75th and Prospect to serve the new Alphapointe Transit Center and connect to Prospect MAX, and trips would be added to the route to achieve a consistent schedule, with 30-minute frequency in peak hours and hourly frequency in the midday and evening hours. Service to KU-Edwards would be discontinued due to low ridership (fewer than 15 a day). View a draft schedule here.
 
495 95th Street: This route is being considered for elimination due to low ridership and redundancy with other services. The 475 Quivira-75th Street and 75 75th Street routes provide service along portions of the corridor. Microtransit is also an option in most locations. 
 
595 Gardner-OP Express: Service to Edgerton and Logistics Park Kansas City is being discontinued due to low ridership (fewer than 10 riders a day). Five trips will be provided from Gardner to downtown in the morning and five return trips in the evening. Two trips in the morning and afternoon will continue to provide “reverse commute” service to Oak Park Mall and the Gardner/New Century areas. View a draft schedule here.
