Late Night is WRTA’s scheduled curb-to-curb service — offered with dedicated small vehicles — that runs between 9:15 pm and midnight Monday through Friday in Mahoning County.
Using Late Night, you can travel to any destination that is within the areas served by WRTA’s Mahoning County Fixed Routes. Late night will pick you up at your home or other location and take you anywhere you need to go within these areas. Since Late Night is a shared-ride service, other people may be traveling with you.
How to Use Late Night
WRTA riders can schedule their Late Night trips with the new WRTA On Demand app. Late Night riders can register and book trips up to seven days in advance or up to 24 hours before the trip.

The scheduling “window”
If you’re scheduling a Late Night trip, you may do so no later than 24 hours prior to the trip, up to 7 days in advance.
Schedule in advance!
Since trips are scheduled based on when the request was made, we strongly recommend that you book Late Night trips as far in advance as possible — as long as you do this within the time frames shown above.
Your arrival time is what matters
Trips are scheduled based on when you want to arrive at your destination, not when you want to be picked up. The more flexible you can be with your arrangements, the better.
Schedule separate trips for both going and coming back
If you’re making a round trip on Late Night, you will need to schedule a trip for your return from your destination at the same time you schedule your trip to that destination. These must be scheduled as separate trips. You cannot return on the same Late Night bus that took you to your destination; the bus will not wait for you, even if you only require a very short stay at your destination.
Each Late Night trip is a separate trip
You may schedule multiple trips, as long as they all fall within the time frames above. But you cannot schedule a recurring trip (i.e., “I want to get to this same destination at the same time five days a week”). Each of these trips is considered a separate trip and must be scheduled individually.
