Prospect MAX Bus Rapid Transit
Prospect MAX is KCATA’s third Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route that runs along the 10-mile corridor of Prospect Avenue from Downtown Kansas City, MO to 75th Street. The project includes BRT stations and BRT technology such as real-time arrival signage, level boarding platforms, and traffic signal priority for buses. The project also included new sidewalk, curbs, ADA ramps, crosswalks, intersection upgrades, and traffic calming features.
Prospect MAX features new smart technologies to continue the “Smart City” program and make Prospect a Smart Transit Corridor similar to the KC Streetcar. New technologies include free public WiFi on bus and at stations, interactive smart kiosks at stations, and several bike share stations along the corridor.
Overall, Prospect MAX has 48 MAX stations along the route and two transit centers that includes the Downtown East Village Transit Center and the 75th Street Transit Center.
