YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – WRTA announced Wednesday that it is reestablishing some routes to Warren and starting new ones in the valley.
On December 6, fixed route service in Warren will return thanks to a grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation.
There will be seven fixed routes to serve Warren, and Warren Express will continue to operate its regular route.
The seven new routes in Warren will be # 70 Southeast, # 71 North, # 72 Southwest, # 73 East, # 74 Elm, # 75 Northwest and # 76 North Jackson Express .
Cyclists will be able to travel to shopping malls, senior centers, hospitals and high employment areas, including destinations such as the Ultium Cells battery factory and the TJX distribution center.
A new route to Akron will also be put in place.
âThe route was primarily designed to help veterans get to Cleveland VA Hospital,â WRTA Executive Director Dean Harris said. “But it’s also useful for bikers looking to travel to the Akron area for
shopping or other activities.
The Akron Express includes a stop at the Robert K Pfaff transit center of the METR where a METRO fee of $ 5 must be paid for a one-way or $ 40 for a 10-trip ticket on the north coast for additional service to the Cleveland VA Hospital.
There are two scheduled travel times for the Akron Express. One leaving from the Federal Station at 10:40 a.m. for a depot in Akron and the other leaving at 4:40 p.m. for a pick-up at 5:40 p.m.
