Bus schedules for today, tomorrow as snowstorm approaches

With the aproaching snowstorm possibly delayed now until after rush hour, the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority says buses will operate normally this afternoon.

However, if the weather gets worse this evening, buses may become delayed.

“We are encouraging people to reduce unnecessary travel after rush hour.  It is our plan and goal to maintain full service throughout the region on Monday. However, we ask that customers stay informed and consider their personal safety when deciding to travel,” the bus service said in a press release.

On Tuesday, customers should check current information before traveling. KCATA is currently planning to run Metro and MAX service tomorrow morning. Service may be delayed if road conditions are poor. A suspension of service would be a last resort.

Due to the anticipated weather, Share-A-Fare paratransit participants may experience delays of two or more hours on Tuesday, Feb. 26.  The KCATA is encouraging all non-dialysis trips be cancelled. Share-A-Fare customers can cancel trips by calling (816) 842-9070.
