WHEREAS, in July of 2005 KCATA implemented the first Bus Rapid Transit line called MAX or Metro Area Express that linked the River Market, Government Complex, Convention Center, Crown Center and County Club Plaza with fast, frequent and reliable bus service which was successfully received; and,

 

WHEREAS, this agreement will continue the Citys partnership with the KCATA and will implement the next phase of Bus Rapid Transit Service along Troost Avenue.
