Johnson County Paying $250K For FAILED Kansas City Transit Experiment
Presser news from lesser news outlets missed the big picture about this on-demand bus service that was a bust in KCMO and now earns a second chance in the Golden Ghetto. Here's a tease on the topic of a suburban experiment:
KC Biz Journal: JoCo rolls out micro-transit pilot
"Now the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority and Johnson County are testing another micro-transit program, but this time with Ford-owned Transloc.
"To use the service, riders can either use the app or call a number and they'll be picked up from a designated nearby corner. The program's technology will determine the most efficient routes, and the hope is that it creates a more feasible and sustainable alternative to the full-sized city buses that run routes in the suburbs. Wait times at pickup points are expected to be 15 minutes or less."
It's called "RideKC Microtransit" which also sounds like a horrible STD.
