In the summer of 2018, RideKC will begin construction of Prospect MAX, the city's third bus rapid transit corridor. This project includes 45 new transit stations and two transit centers along a 10-mile corridor from south Kansas City to downtown. Improvements include new stations along the city’s east/west Transit Emphasis Corridors on 11th and 12th streets in downtown. Tour participants will also ride the Kansas City Streetcar from Union Station to the River Market and back. The streetcar began service in 2016 and has provided more than 4 million trips in its first two years, and has been a transformative investment in downtown that has helped to spur increased development activity. The tour will conclude by travelling along the planned Main Street Extension of the Kansas City Streetcar. This project is currently in the project development phase to expand the existing route to the south, serving Midtown, the Plaza, and the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC). Space is limited, sign up today! Tour includes bus travel, light refreshments and guides.
If this workshop does not have 20 participants registered on or before October 8, 2018, it may be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment.
