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.

New fares will come into effect on July 1, 2017. See the full fare chart.
All passengers must have the exact change, change cards are no longer issued effective May 30, 2017.
