All Points Transit is expanding the Olathe Express Shuttle routes serving Montrose and Olathe. The organization recently added one morning route to Olathe from Montrose starting at 7 AM and an afternoon route bringing passengers back to Montrose from Olathe beginning at 4 PM. In addition, All Points Transit has partnered with the Olathe Community Clinic to add another round trip route at 2 pm on Thursdays and Fridays only, beginning March 1st. APT and the Olathe Clinic are also providing a Delta –Olathe Community Clinic Express Route for patients to get to the Clinic from the City ofDelta one day per week. Patients using any of the transportation options to get to the clinic for their appointment can ride for free by scheduling through the clinic.
“When we began the Montrose City Bus service in 2010, we designed the program for Olathe residents to get into Montrose for work, shopping, medical appointments and other services,” All Points Executive Director Terri Wilcox said. “What we have seen since then is a rising demand for transportation intoOlathefrom Montrose. People want to get to the schools, to the Olathe Community Clinic, and to visit family members.”
The 7:15 AM and 4 PM Montrose routes will run as a pilot program for the next six months, at which point the organization will evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the service. The 2 PM Montrose-Olathe route is based on a 15-month contract with the Olathe Community Clinic.
