Countywide origin-to-destination service is a service for Mahoning County communities that allows everyone — including seniors, workers and disabled individuals — to have reliable transportation across the entire county.
Since Countywide is a shared-ride service, other people may be traveling with you.
Countywide is a flexible service that is offered with small buses and vans. Countywide picks riders up at their home or other location and takes them where they need to go. Riders may make any kind of trip — to work, shopping, doctor/dental appointment, personal needs, etc.
Who can use Countywide?
Anyone traveling in Mahoning County can use this service. Elderly persons and people with disabilities who can no longer drive or prefer not to drive may rely on Countywide for their travel needs if they have no car or their car is unavailable. Countywide can help you reach locations not served by WRTA direct and loop routes and ADA All-Access services.
