Public transportation is not available in many areas of our city.

I was an Uber/Lyft driver for 2 years before the pandemic here in KC. It was a lot of fun and provided a meaningful service for people of all income levels. But the lockdown ended my driving, and I think the reduced air travel and reduced large events has reduced the riders.

i think with autonomous cars in the near future, smaller parking lots and structures and community shared vehicles can go a long way to helping with density of living space construction. I think this has to be in conjunction with public transportation and building along main transportion roads.

I was carless for 4 months a couple of years ago. I relied on Uber, rides from friends, and walking to get where I needed to go. I chose my house on a bus line, BUT there were only 2 buses toward downtown in the am and 2 buses back to OP in the pm. Hard to get anywhere in between.

Public transportation in Johnson County means RideKC. While RideKC can get select people to select workplaces that operate on a traditional work schedule. Getting to places to get groceries, prescription drugs, or other house needs, is even more difficult

I WISH I could get around using public transportation. I spent a summer in SF and I miss BART so much. My parents were shocked moving here from Lincoln NE at how nonexistent public transportation is in JoCo. Free + reliable public transport would be so beneficial here

The Metropolitan Council outlines 10 units per acre within a 10 min walk for High Frequency Bus Networks, with a goal of 15-60+ units per acre. KC does not encourage this density and therefore the ridership to support buses. https://metrocouncil.org/Handbook/Files/Resources/Fact-Sheet/LAND-USE/Dens

This is a more sustainable option and I like the freedom public transportation provides. It will require investment

more reliable; more scheduling options.

I live by several great bus route locations so public transit works for me to get to work.
