During the summer, Kansas City is more vulnerable to unhealthy ozone pollution. This pollution is largely caused when emissions from motor vehicles, lawn mowers, power plants and industry react with heat and sunlight.
Between June 1 and September 30, when the area is under an Ozone Alert, one-way bus fare will be only 75¢. The fare is not valid on the The JO’s 710-K-10 Connector, but is valid for travel on other express routes. The special Ozone Alert fare includes a transfer upon request, and is also available on The Metro, The JO, Unified Government Transit and IndeBus. The Metro’s Day Pass, purchased at the farebox, remains $3.
