4 Kansas City agencies introduce single pass

Posted on March 31, 2014

Starting April 1 commuters can use a single pass on any of the four local transit services in the Kansas City region —  Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA), Johnson County Transit, Unified Government Transit and the City of Independence — will accept The JO Standard Express Monthly Pass from Johnson County Transit.

This multi-agency agreement is one of the first outcomes of the Regional Transit Coordinating Council.

“This is an important step in making transit easier to navigate for current riders and more attractive to new riders in the Kansas City region,” said Robbie Makinen, co-chair of the Transit Coordinating Council and chair of the KCATA Board of Commissioners. “This is the first of many things that the Coordinating Council is working on to make transit a stronger travel option in our region.”

The universal pass acceptance is a precursor to a regional pass. A regional pass will be created following the regional fare study that is currently being conducted.

Other priorities for the Regional Transit Coordinating Council include regional paratransit coordination and integration of travel information online and via phone.
