Kansas City Pilots Microtransit: Partnership with Bridj Delivers On-Demand Bus Service

The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) is the first major transit agency to partner with a technology company to employ microtransit as a public transportation option. KCATA is piloting on-demand bus service through a partnership with Bridj, a company based in Boston, Massachusetts. For a traditional bus service, riders go to a bus stop located on a prescheduled route, but with the RideKC Bridj microtransit service, the stop comes to the rider, on the rider’s schedule. This brief article describes Bridj vehicles, service area, and staffing.
