Kansas City’s regional public transit took a step toward becoming emission-free Friday with the unveiling of two 40-foot electric buses that will be added to the RideKC bus fleet. The KCATA is partnering with Evergy to bring the electric buses, manufactured by GILLIG, to Kansas City. Zero emissions fits with the free bus fare that Kansas City has been providing for a year to create social equity by providing access to jobs, education, health care and housing, Makinen said.
