KCATA Enters into Regional Bus Service in Kansas

The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority, in partnership with the Kansas counties of Wyandotte and Johnson, began providing a major expansion of regional public transit service on Jan. 4.

KCATA said the weekday service fills a key gap in the area’s public transportation system, adding three and a half miles to an existing route to connect the Mission Transit Center to the University of Kansas Medical Center complex with a stop in downtown Kansas City, KS.

The expanded service provides Wyandotte County residents with improved access to jobs via the Mission Transit Center, which offers connections to major Johnson County employers. It will also ease parking demands for the medical center, which employs about 10,000 people each day but only has about 5,000 parking spaces.
