This survey will be for the purpose of soliciting comments on the unmet transit needs that may exist within Kings County and that might be reasonable to meet by establishing or contracting for new public transportation or specialized transportation services or by expanding existing services. Unmet public transportation needs are defined as, at a minimum, transportation services which are not provided for person who do not have access to private vehicles, or other forms of transportation, due to age, income, or disability, for the purpose of medical care, shopping social/recreational activities, educations/training and employment.
The 2020 Transit Development Plan (TDP) is a five-year plan for the operation of transit services in and to Kings County with the main goal of optimizing use of resources to best meet transit needs. Follow the link below to participate and give your input.
KART has increased the frequency of cleaning the interior of our buses and riders are advised to take personal responisbility and not use public transit if they are feeling ill. KART requests that riders limit non-essentail bus travel until further notice. If you have to travel on KART bus, we ask that you leave extra space between yourself and others.

Kings Area Rural Transit (KART) will be implementing a new pilot flex route to replace routes 30 and 31 effective November 1, 2018. The KART Flex Route is similar to our fixed routes; it is designed to pick a passenger up or drop them off at a designated KART bus stop only. The bus will arrive directly at the requested bus stop versus driving the entire route reducing the ride time for the user.
This service will provide faster, more convenient and more reliable service than current routes.
KART buses are modern, comfortable, and ADA accessible.
The service will provide a stop to stop service.
If you are not aware of the nearest flex stop, please contact dispatch for further instruction.
