KCATA expands on-demand paratransit program

Posted on April 5, 2018

The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA), in cooperation with the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas, is expanding its RideKC Freedom On-Demand paratransit services into Wyandotte County.

“We have had great success with our RideKC Freedom On-Demand service in Kansas City and this is another step toward regional, comprehensive mobility services,” said Robbie Makinen, president/CEO of KCATA. “It further drives home the idea that building great value-added services for our riders and community partners will drive public transit success in the region.”

Freedom On-Demand has proven itself as a leader in paratransit services in the region providing more than 54,000 rides since May 2017 when it launched in parts of Kansas City, Mo., and northeast Johnson County, Kan. With the expansion into Wyandotte County, RideKC Freedom On-Demand can provide paratransit users with more options.

Ridership for Freedom On-Demand continues to grow. In just the last month, KCATA provided more than 7,700 rides for paratransit users in the region. The expansion doesn’t just give users more options, but allows the KCATA to continue building on robust, innovative partnerships that drive the region forward.
