Expanded WRTA Service Coming to Warren Next Year!
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has announced a grant that will enable the Western Reserve Transit Authority (WRTA) to begin Fixed Route bus service in Trumbull County in March of 2020, with up to six routes serving the greater Warren area. The grant also provides funding for several other WRTA initiatives in both Mahoning and Trumbull Counties.
WRTA already operates the Warren Express route, which runs from Federal Station in downtown Youngstown to Courthouse Square in Warren and limited surrounding areas. The new Warren Fixed Route buses would all be accessible to riders traveling the Warren Express route, so there will be a seamless connection between them. Fares for the Fixed Route buses in Warren will be the same as other WRTA routes.
There will be public meetings at which potential riders can comment on the proposed routes. Their final form will be influenced by this public input. As the start date draws closer, watch for additional announcements about the public meetings, as well as other information about this new WRTA service.
