KANSAS CITY - This fall UMKC students can use their student IDs to ride MAX and the Metro, thanks to a new partnership between the KCATA and the University.
Last spring, students and the University approved a transportation fee that creates an all-access transit pass on KCATA bus service. All students are assessed a $14 fee per semester to fund the universal pass.
UMKC students can just swipe their ID when they board MAX and Metro buses for unlimited rides all semester.
The Metro offers more than 70 routes and more than 30 park-and-rides throughout the Kansas City region.
