Kansas City Paves the Way for the Evolution of Microtransit

“This new transit option empowers customers to make the choice that works best for them. It’s customer-driven transit.” -Robbie Makinen, President and CEO of Kansas City Area Transportation Authority

TransLoc believes that transit agencies are central to making microtransit a reality both today and for the future of transportation. Municipal agencies are setting the pace in connecting their citizens with opportunities within their communities and we are fortunate to partner with many across the United States who instill their trust in TransLoc as we uncover and solve for unexpected challenges in the ever-evolving transit landscape.

“One of the best examples of this is in the Kansas City metropolitan area. As an early adopter of microtransit, the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) and its community leaders have worked with two microtransit consultancies: Bridj and TransLoc. By taking a close look at the two approaches, a clear picture of the Kansas City area’s evolution of microtransit can be developed.”

Hear from KCATA’s President and CEO, Robbie Makinen, Sr. Vice President Operations & Innovation,
Jameson Auten, and Johnson County Government officials about how the key to improving any transit program is learning from the past to propel into the future.
