KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Throughout June, RideKC is hosting 'bus stop pop ups.'

RideKC executives will hit the streets to pass out surveys and talk with passengers and non-passengers about ways to improve public transportation in Kansas City.

These surveys are part of RideKC Next, a transit redesign system.

The project is a review and redesign of transit service that focuses on Kansas City, Missouri.

Leaders with RideKC said the goal is to make sure updates to the network reflects the needs, priorities and values of the people in KCMO communities.

Chuck Ferguson with RideKC said the pop up stops provide a way to meet people where they are, in case they don't have access to internet to do the survey.

So far, approximately 1,100 surveys have been collected.

Once they gather feedback from the surveys, they'll review them and share a draft plan. Once they gather additional community feedback, they'll review and approve a plan by the KCATA Board of Commissioners and later implement that plan in 2020-2021.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. The deadline is July 31.
