KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City community will have additional opportunities to evaluate the RideKC East-West Transit study.
The study is examining a potential connection between the area near the Truman Sports Complex in Kansas City, Missouri, and the University of Kansas Health System campus on Rainbow Boulevard in Kansas City, Kansas.
The next round of public meetings about the study will be held in early February, according to the KC Streetcar Authority.
Those who participate will have the opportunity to learn about the proposed transit scenarios, including the routes for the plan. There will also be a question and answer session where the public can provide feedback on the plan.
The first round of meetings will be held at 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm on Tuesday, February 7 at the Habitat for Humanity of KC, 1423 Linwood Blvd. in Kansas City, Missouri.
The second set of meetings will be held on Thursday, February 9 at 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 4153 Rainbow Blvd. in Kansas City, Kansas.
The study first began in April 2022. Since its launch, more than 150 individual discussions, three public meetings and two community surveys have been used to generate input on the plan and community transit needs.
The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority, the KC Streetcar Authority, the City of Kansas City, Missouri, the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas, and the University of Kansas Hospital Authority are partners in the project.
