YOUride Service Is Being Tested in Boardman
Starting September 3, YouRide on-demand service will be available in Boardman in areas surrounding the Rte. 224 corridor from the West Blvd. Giant Eagle to Tiffany Blvd. and the South Ave. Walmart.
YOUride is great for getting to several different retail stores within the service area without having to wait for a Fixed Route bus. Or, if you need to connect with a major Fixed Route hub such as the Southern Park Mall or Walmart, YOUride can get you there. And those who are staying at one of the motels south of Rte. 224 can take YOUride to restaurants, stores or any other location within the service area.
YOUride buses are smaller vehicles that offer rider-scheduled service to any location within the service area shown above. Rides can be scheduled only via the TransLoc smartphone app, which can be downloaded from Google Play or the App Store.
Once a ride has been scheduled, riders can see the approximate time when their YOUride bus will arrive, and follow its progress in real time on a map within the app.
YOUride service is available between 6:30 pm and 10:30 pm Monday through Friday. The YOUride introductory fare is just $1.00 per ride!
