Today marks a significant improvement in access to jobs in southern Johnson County and in Kansas City’s Northland. RideKC introduces a new express route to Gardner and Edgerton businesses; adds night service on two popular routes between Johnson County and Kansas City, Mo.; adds service to the Tiffany Springs area; and adds later trips in Independence, Mo.
“These major additions to transit service will benefit the businesses, along with current and potential employees,” said Vice President Regional Planning Chuck Ferguson. “Communities are reaching out to us, telling us that candidates can’t get to the jobs they have available. These new services are a win-win for workers and businesses.”
