RideKC has announced that the City of Raytown has chosen to end its fixed-route transit service and replace it with an on-demand service on July 7. This means that routes 28 Blue Ridge, 29 Blue Ridge Limited, 63 63rd Street and 399 Raytown Flex will no longer stop in the city.

The transit service noted that 399 Raytown Flex will be eliminated while the other three routes will continue to serve the rest of Kansas City. To fill the gaps, the IRIS On-Demand service will be available to Raytown residents.
