kansas transit background
Kansas Transit Background
  • Current Structure: Coordinated Transit Districts
    • Created in 1992 by statute to require regional coordination.
    • Each CTD is managed by a volunteer
    • Very Limited funding associated with administration of CTD
    • Members are KDOT grantee transit providers (limited membership otherwise)
future business model
Future Business Model:
  • Mobility Management Districts
  • 10-12 districts that defined by travel patterns.
  • Each district would have one Mobility Manager that KDOT would fund directly
    • Required to meet a specific level of service
    • Can subcontract with other transit providers
    • The lead agency will use “One Call” dispatching.

“It’s wonderful…when it works…”
