The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) has joined the social media website Pinterest to share stories, inspirations, tips, and news. The agency previously instituted an online presence on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Transit trip planner, and its own website.
“Pinterest offers a way for us to share the story of transit in Kansas City and ideas about how to enjoy The Metro lifestyle,” said Marketing Supervisor Bridget Moss.
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard that lets users organize and share things they find interesting, from craft projects to humorous pictures or vacation destinations. The website is one of the fastest growing social media sites, with more than 20 million users.
KCATA’s pinboards include Favorite Places, Riders, Arts + Transit, Fashion, Transit History, Humor, and Celebrities on Transit.
