Free Rides on All WRTA Buses Continued Through 12/31/21
Free fares on all WRTA buses will be extended through December 31, 2021.
“We first implemented free fares last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said WRTA Executive Director Dean Harris. “While that situation has improved in recent months, the Valley is still recovering from its effects in many ways. We want to continue to make it easy for our riders to get to and from their jobs, to medical appointments, and to the many retail areas we serve in Mahoning County and the City of Warren.”
Social distancing on board WRTA’s large buses has been relaxed, and seats that had been blocked off are now available again. However, in accordance with CDC guidelines, passengers are still required to wear face coverings when riding all WRTA buses. And riders should still board WRTA’s Fixed Route buses from the rear door (with the exception of riders using wheelchairs or strollers).
The free fare policy applies to all WRTA services: Fixed Route, Late Night, Countywide and ADA All-Access.
