Introducing New 31 Day Pass
Johnson County Transit is introducing 31 day passes to replace all existing Monthly passes. The KCATA (METRO) uses a similar 31 day pass. The cost for all passes will remain the same but now you get the flexibility of your own start time. All passes are still valid on KCATA buses. Purchase outlets have not changed.
Please remember – there are NO refunds for passes. The passes will be validated and start counting 31 days from the first time the pass is dunked into the farebox. Once validated, riders will swipe the pass on future boardings. You can purchase multiple passes at a time, they will not activate until their first use. New 31 day passes will go on sale by August 15, 2014.
Again, there are no refunds. If you accidentally misplace your pass or if the pass gets damaged and is unreadable by the farebox, you will have to purchase a new 31 day pass. JCT recommends keeping your pass in a plastic jacket or some protective device.
If you have questions about this new pass, please call 913-782-2210. To purchase a pass – visit www.thejo.com, or come into our office between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Mon-Fri.
JO Passport companies will still return August monthly bus passes. Companies will receive 31 day passes as credit in lieu of past monetary credit (i.e., if you return eight August JO Passports, you will receive eight 31 day passes in addition to your standard order). Starting September 1, 2014, passes will no longer be on a “consignment basis” and passes will not be able to be returned for full credit. If you order extra passes, those will be paid for and need not be returned. The new passes have no expiration, they can be sold for any date, rather than for a specific calendar month. If you would like to change your order or have any questions, please contact Tina Pederson at 913-715-8347 or email@example.com. JCT feels this is the simplest transition with minimal disruption.
