  1. Would figure just wait and buy some CNG buses. Not like a few more years on the 2008 LFs will hurt them. At least they're building more pumps. Hopefully the upgrades are worth while
  2. Leave it to RideKC to not have the proper infrastructure, they knew they needed to be able to handle 300 buses, why were these not built previously? Wonder what the rest of the vehicle replacement schedule will look lile since they are over capacity. We know there are 94 electric buses coming, but how is that going to work, if they dont even have enough CNG pumps, let alone electric infrastructure. Or is every new order just going to be electric and diesel?
  3. If it comes to that hopefully they will take care of you guys (money wise) during that time. It would be weird not seeing buses roaming around, but if thats what must be done, then so be it.
  4. Well, my suite-mate has the flu, but for a minute there we were quarantined because of the virus fears. I would guess at some point RideKC would be suspending service, but not at the moment. If anything, suspend certain routes, run some extra buses on heavy use routes. Keep people separated
  5. I definitely am, just do what I have to do to stay healthy, and make sure I am okay. God is good. I ended up not making the trip tonight sadly, unfortunately there's a situation at the dorms, I moved my stuff out, cause it's getting ridiculous around here.
  6. That's kinda scary. This is getting bad, sports just all cancelled. Events shutting down.
  7. Deadass? How's that not been broken as news yet? Shoot I almost don't want to ride the bus, considering the nasties that ride on a daily basis. Drivers can only do so much out on the road.
  8. I'm guessing since we haven't had a huge outbreak here yet, we're far from that. Are you, or other drivers taking any extra precautions?
  9. Shocked we haven't seen systems like Seattle (where there's a widespread outbreak) shut down or even limit service yet Most RideKC has done has started cleaning every bus daily, put hand sanitizer in buses, and run announcements on the buses.
  10. Just out of curiosity, if the COVID19 spreads throughout the Metro, what's the chance RideKC starts limiting or even halting operations?
  11. Being outside 2606 is almost worth as much as being in it. Man she's a beast. It'll be a huge shame when ATA finally retires them.
  12. Thank the lord in regards to MAX. As for Wyandotte County, what the hell? No way that route isn't performing well to keep it around and keep funding it. Unless they got their budget cut, but if that's the case, why would 106 be the first on the list? Technically, ATA could turn control of those routes back to the county, but it'll never happen. The state of Kansas in general is piss poor on funding transit, and it's a damn shame. KS could have such a better system if the state bothered to fund it properly. Also let me just say, MAN 2606 IS A BEAST. I live in the UMKC dorms, so I had the chance to hear it go up that hill on 51st, MAN SHE ROARED.
  13. Actually that sounds like a good idea combining 106 and 107. 116 could become just 116-Parallel. I guess if 106 lost its service, they could revive 114. Is Main MAX continuing service to Waldo? Or is it being replaced by 40? If MMAX isnt serving Waldo thats a huge blow. Service to South KC and Waldo with #40 would be 60 minutes only without MAX. As for the JoCo changes. Man thats such a joke. Honestly if JoCo doesnt want to play ball cut them out of RideKC. Ridiculous they arent trying to get better service.
  14. Apparently at the expense of Saturday service on the 106. That's on the chopping block. Service to Waldo and South KC being hit hard too, losing Main MAX, and having frequency chopped in half. Sasme with Blue Ridge Crossing
  15. This first draft is worse than I thought, the individual route breakdowns show what a joke it is. Seems we're losing a lot of service compared to what's being gained.
