- Connex Business Day Event June 5.
- The new Mission Transit Center is under construction at 5251 Johnson Drive. This facility will serve as JCT’s primary transfer center (replacing 6000 Lamar) and is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2013. This project is part of the Kansas City Regional TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) Award (http://www.marc.org/TIGER/) that is funding transit, bicycle, and pedestrian infrastructure improvements throughout the region.
- New Connex transit stations along Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park and along Martway and Johnson Drive in Mission are also beginning to take shape. This project is also funded by TIGER and includes sidewalks, trails, and traffic signal improvements. Station locations include Rosana Square (119th Street), Metcalf South (95th Street), and Downtown Overland Park (80th & Marty). Route 556/856 – Metcalf-Plaza and Route 664 – Metcalf Downtown will serve these new facilities.
...coming soon on Metcalf, new shelters are being installed. Image 2
- Please note these shelters are not open for use and are still under construction. Please continue to use your old bus stops until the June 3 opening.
- Five popular Park & Ride lots in Overland Park and Olathe will have new transit stations for passengers of Route 661 – Olathe Xpress, Route 670 – Gardner-OP Xpress, and Route 673 – South OP Xpress. Concrete work for these improvements has already been completed. Shelters, route information kiosks, and real-time electronic signage are being installed. These improvements are funded by a grant from the Federal Transit Administration.

Johnson County Transit has received American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) funds. Bus #217 was funded by ARRA while investments along Metcalf Avenue and Shawnee Mission Parkway are being funded by TIGER. See TIGER Tracker or project details for more information.
All of our buses and cutaway vans are equipped with wheelchair lifts to accommodate our disabled commuters. Many buses can lower at the curbside so riders don't have to step quite so high to get onto the bus. Please ask the driver for assistance.
