Flex Route

The KART Flex Route is similar to the fixed route; 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.

All trips on the Flex Route will require the user to schedule a reservation for a pickup. Reservations can be made up to 7 days in advance, but need to be made at least 30 minutes prior, reservations must be made by 9:00 pm. The Flex Route will stop picking riders up at 9:30 pm.

  • 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.
