RideKC Microtransit available for eastern Lenexa

RideKC Microtransit available for eastern Lenexa
Posted on 01/28/2019

If you’re looking for an easy way to get around in eastern Lenexa, RideKC can help. Beginning Feb. 1, 2019, RideKC will offer an on-demand service to connect you to work, school, shopping and more through their six-month microtransit pilot program.

The microtransit program will allow you to use an app on your phone to request a ride anywhere in the service boundaries – Shawnee Mission Parkway to the North, Metcalf Avenue to the east, 119th Street to the south and Renner Boulevard to the west – Monday through Friday 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. This includes Johnson County Community College. Each ride costs $1.50.

To book a ride, either use the Microtransit app or call 816.512.5510. Be sure to allow ample time to arrive at your destination, as this is a ridesharing program, so there may be others in your vehicle also using the service.

Using the microtransit app is simple:

  1. Go to your app store and search “microtransit” to download the app.

  2. Create a free account with the app (Your information will not be shared, but you will need to include your mobile phone number if you would like to receive text message notifications).

  3. Confirm your pick-up location and select your drop-off location. These must be within the service's region paramaters shown on the map. Change your pick-up time by tapping “ ASAP” and selecting a new time and date to schedule your ride ahead of time.

  4. Select the number of passengers with you, and if you need a wheelchair-accessible vehicle. Tap "Request Ride" when ready.

  5. Enjoy your trip!
