YOUride Service Comes to Boardman
Starting Tuesday, September 3, WRTA is testing a new service in Boardman that will make it easier for shoppers and others to get around within the Rte. 224 retail corridor from the West Blvd. Giant Eagle to Tiffany Blvd. and the South Ave. Walmart.
YOUride is an on-demand, rider-scheduled small-bus service that can used to get to several different retail stores within the service area without having to wait for a Fixed Route bus. Or, if you need to connect with a major Fixed Route hub such as the Southern Park Mall or Walmart, YOUride can get you there. And those who are staying at one of the motels south of Rte. 224 can take YOUride to restaurants, stores or any other location within the service area.
Rides can be scheduled only via the TransLoc smartphone app, which you can download from Google Play or the App Store. Once you’ve registered and scheduled your first ride, you’ll see the approximate time when your YOUride bus will arrive, and you’ll be able to follow its progress in real time on a map within the app.
YOUride service is available between 6:30 pm and 10:30 pm Monday through Friday within the service area shown on the map below. The YOUride introductory fare is just $1.00 per ride!
