It’s fine


It is nice and simple to use but if you aren’t connected to a network of some kind (I don’t have cellular data) there’s a 60/40 chance it won’t let you pull up your ticket. There are times the countdown clock freezes and the app needs to be restarted losing the ticket until you are connected to the network again. Buses won’t show up on the bus tracker section.

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback. All KCATA-operated routes do show up on the Where's My Ride feature. Can you refer to which bus route? Currently, Johnson County and Independence buses don't display and a fix for that is coming in 2018. A fix for the countdown clock (which appears to be unique to 31-Day passes) is coming in a future release. Please email appsupport@ridekc.org for future support requests.

Convenient but unreliable


It’s nice to be able to purchase fare quickly and see approximate arrival times. Sadly route and schedule information usually just does not appear on the map. Worse, the app crashes and freezes frequently, sometimes requiring a complete reinstallation. Keep spare cash for fare if you rely on this app!

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback. Please contact us at appsupport@ridekc.org so we can confirm what version of iOS you are using. This will help us investigate the crashes you're experiencing (it helps to make sure your device is up to date). A new version (2.0) is coming soon that improves the amount of schedule information in the trip planner.

Was cool .. at first


So the app was working fine at first then a couple days ago it completely crashed and I have no way of getting my money back from the paid tickets.. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling and now I can’t even log in... this definitely needs to be fixed

Developer Response

Please contact appsupport@ridekc.org as soon as possible and include your email address or mobile number used to register. A new version was introduced last week (2.1), so please check to make sure that's the one you have installed.
