YOUride Expands Service Area, Offers FREE Rides
Those using WRTA’s new YOUride service now have even more destinations they can be taken to or picked up from. And YOUride is being offered FREE during the introductory period.
The YOUride service area has been expanded; it now encompasses as far as Starrs Corners in Canfield Township to the west, the Poland Giant Eagle in Poland Township to the east, and Western Reserve Road to the south.
YOUride, a shared-ride service, can now take riders not only to destinations that are not a convenient walking distance from any Fixed Route WRTA bus stop, but also into areas that aren’t served by any Fixed Route bus.
Two common ways you might use YOUride
If your job is located a substantial distance from a WRTA Fixed Route bus stop and you START or LEAVE work between 6:30 and 10:30 pm.
When you’re GOING to work, you can request a YOUride to pick you up at your bus stop and bring you right to the door of your job. When you LEAVE work between 6:30 and 10:30 pm, request a YOUride to pick you up at your place of employment and bring you to the Fixed Route bus stop.
When you want to dine, shop or run other errands within the service area between 6:30 and 10:30 pm.
Just take a WRTA Fixed Route Bus to the service area and request a YOUride to pick you up at your bus stop. You’ll be dropped off right at the door of any supermarket, department store, medical center, restaurant or other location in the service area. When you’re done shopping or running errands, request another YOUride to pick you up at your location and bring you to the WRTA bus stop.
