    Topeka Metro to launch on-demand transportation in 2023

    TOPEKA, KANSAS (November 21, 2022) -- The Topeka Metropolitan Transit Authority announces plans to launch a microtransit service for the southeast part of Topeka, starting in January 2023. The on-demand service, named MOD (Metro On-Demand), will allow customers to request curb-to-curb transportation within specific service areas. In addition, passengers will be able to request rides that would arrive within 15 minutes, which is similar to ride share services.

     

    “As we continue to look for new ways to improve, we believe the more personalized nature of microtransit will be a great addition to our service," said Bob Nugent, Topeka Metro general manager. "Microtransit has been around for while and has proven to be a more expedient and cost-effective way for folks to travel to where they need to go."  

     

    Passengers can access residential and commercial locations, or even connect with a fixed route bus for travel outside the defined zones. Hours of MOD operation will be Monday through Friday from 5:35 a.m. to 6:40 p.m., and Saturday from 8:15 a.m. to 6:40 p.m. Fees for this shared ride program will be $2 for a one-way ride. Reduced Fare and youth pricing options are available. 


    Topeka Metro will host a series of public meetings beginning November 30th into December 2022 to explain how MOD will operate and to answer questions.  

     

    Please click on the link to access the public meeting notice in English. A Spanish version is available here.

     

    A flyer explaining the service in English and Spanish can be found at this link.
