The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) is considering revising its Share-A-Fare eligibility process and is hosting several public meetings to garner community feedback.

Share-A-Fare is a transportation program that provides “specialized origin to destination service” for individuals whose disability prevents them from independently using fixed-route bus service.

Below is a list of upcoming public meetings:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 15, 1–2:30 p.m., Kansas City Public Library, Waldo Branch, 201 E. 75th  St., Kansas City, Mo.
  • Saturday, Jan. 18, 10-11:30 a.m., KCATA, Breen Building, 1200 E. 18th St., Kansas City, Mo.
