“This year’s Transit Day will highlight the work that more than 150 agencies do to provide reliable, clean and useful transit and paratransit services to the people of Kansas,” said Transportation Secretary Richard Carlson. “Come meet the people who make our programs successful by transporting Kansans to where they live, work, learn, heal and play every day.”

Legislators, COMTO Kansas City,  and other attendees were invited to meet the state’s service providers, tour new transit and paratransit vehicles, learn how transit reinforces economic development in our state, and learn about new technologies being used in Kansas. The free event included display tables located in the first-floor rotunda and vehicles available to tour outside on the apron surrounding the capitol.
