RideKC 11 bus route to expand to KU Med Center

Northeast News

Beginning on Monday, January 8, the RideKC 11 bus will expand its weekday route to reach the University of Kansas Medical Center in KCK.
The 11 Northeast-Westside route currently comprises nine stops, traveling as far northbound as Universal & Equitable, and as far southbound as 31st and Southwest Blvd. With the new pilot program in place, the route will stretch southbound to KU Med Center at 39th and Rainbow. In a press release issued on January 2, RideKC stated that the expanded route will “offer more access to healthcare and thousands of jobs from the Northeast, Westside and downtown.”

The route expansion will only apply to weekdays, when the service will run every 30 minutes during most hours. Between 7 p.m. and midnight, however, bus service will only run hourly. The RideKC press release suggested that the expansion will fulfill recommendations by the Smart Moves regional study and the Rosedale Master Plan to provide additional access to the KU Med Center and Hospital.

For more information on changes to RideKC bus routes, visit RideKC.org. Questions regarding the route changes can also be directed to the Regional Call Center on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. That number is (816) 221-0660.
