KCATA is considering a downtown alignment change for Main Street MAX. The route would be straightened out and run on Grand from River Market to the Crossroads.
The proposed alignment (see map below) would reduce Main Street MAX’s travel time through downtown, significantly improving service reliability and on-time performance (in and out of downtown). This alignment change is consistent with KCATA’s long-term vision for downtown transit, which aims to simplify bus service, using Grand Blvd, 11th Street, and 12th Street as transit emphasis corridors. Please take a few moments of your time to give us your thoughts about the proposed alignment.

Description of proposed change: With the proposed alignment, northbound Main Street MAX would continue its current alignment by Union Station, then turn right (east) on 20th street, and left (north) on Grand, and continue north on Grand to 3rd & Grand. Southbound trips will follow the same alignment in reverse.
