(Kansas City, Mo. – Aug. 22, 2014) The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) will hold “How-to-Ride” clinics to help University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) students find out just how easy and economical it is to ride The Metro.
UMKC students are able to ride The Metro and MAX free with their student ID, in return for paying a universal student fee. Students have access to nearly 70 Metro routes, whether they are going to class or going out on the town. On-campus parking is a perennial student complaint, so the U-Pass program offers an environmentally friendly, economical, easy way to get to campus.
KCATA will be on the UMKC Volker Campus for two days:
Monday, August 25, and Tuesday, August 26
11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
North of Student Union
A MAX bus will be on site. Students can get help finding out which routes will get them where they need to go. They can also see how to swipe their student ID through the farebox on the bus, or try out the bike rack on the front of the bus.
