  1. I just saw the map online, noticed routes 21 & 233 are gone. As for Main Max, it makes sense but it's going be a long ride from end to end. The 47 looks like it'll no longer take 43rd from blue ridge cutoff to pittman, instead using the current 31 alignment. 24 out to Indy on Sunday is a surprise since Indy has that ongoing funding issue but it'll be nice. I like the 28 hanging around but not peak hours only. 252 has an actual route instead of staying on 152 hwy!
  2. I am not on the fan page. I follow the "Gillig" hashtag on instagram.
  3. The reflection in the window, ridekc max paint scheme.
  4. Maybe. I was assuming the first electric ones would have a special paint scheme like the first cng ones had. I know covid-19 has delayed some projects, the 2nd cng pump and relocation of the SB Troost Max stop at TMC until next year.
  5. Spotted on instagram, unclear if electric or cng.
  6. Pretty sure the 24 will still go out to Truman & Noland. As for any extension, I would guess no. The city of Independence is cheap. They've always been against public transit, and I think they're manipulating the covid19 quarantine in order to do away with the buses. Lower ridership numbers and all of a sudden no more buses. I wouldn't put it pass them.
  7. Rumor has it that Indebus is calling it quits on August 1st. This according to one of the drivers who posted on facebook. I heard the new cng pump will be constructed next to the west gate at 17th and Forest. They're going to take some parking spaces for it, also completely redoing the gate entrance.
  8. Later this year, construction will start up at the complex. Buildings will be renovated, a second CNG fueling station will be built as well as technology upgrades. They plan to buy more CNG buses in the future, it won't be all electric. These diesel ones are just a half ass solution to a bigger problem. They usually fuel up buses only at night, but now they'll also do some during the day in between shifts.
  9. In light of the impending apocalypse, ridekc has decided to purchase 12 brand new Gillig's with DIESEL ENGINE'S! Will replace S148-S159. Apparently the CNG fuel depot is at max capacity and can't handle anymore volume, until more pumps are built. As for ridekc next, I don't like it period. document (1).pdf document (2).pdf
  10. The only thing I see is the new 252 route pretty much stays on 152 Hwy from Boardwalk over to the Maplewoods college, then gets back on 152 Hwy towards Liberty. I would like to see it run along Shoal Creek Parkway to the north of the college rather than it just stay on a Hwy. Say 152 from Liberty to the college, then north on Maplewoods Parkway passing by the on ramp for 152 Hwy. Maplewoods turns into N. Woodland. New Mark and Nashua neighborhoods could benefit from this. Then go west on Shoal Creek, then south on N. Oak to 152 Hwy. There's some newer subsidized apartments near 94th and N. Oak
  11. I wasn't expecting a full redesign of the system, mind blown away!
  12. I think the idea for the 529 is the construction workers to get to and from the new terminal. The construction workers are supposed to get a pass to ride free just like the veterans do. And to ride other routes for free. Now for the 47 & 201, I'm totally with ya on 30 minute headways!
  13. It's looking like a 529 KCI Express is in the works.
