KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority will offer shuttles from nighttime to daytime warming centers in Kansas City, Missouri, until temperatures rise.

RideKC shuttles will leave the Scott Eicke Warming Center at Bartle Hall shortly after 8 a.m., KCATA announced in a news release Wednesday night.

“KCATA’s four pillars of transit include providing access to jobs, health care, education and affordable housing,” Robbie Makinen, KCATA’s president and CEO, said in the release. “For those who don’t have housing, we feel compelled to get them to a warm and safe place.”

Most warming centers are along RideKC routes and can be located on the RideKC website.
