YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Western Reserve Transit Authority (WRTA) is offering free rides this week to mark its new bus service in Warren.
WRTA will offer free rides system-wide on all of its fixed routes in Mahoning and Trumbull County from Monday, March 2 through Saturday, March 7.
The free rides are to celebrate six new routes that began running in Warren on Monday, along with the expansion of the 28-Warren Express route. These new routes allow riders to get to all major retail centers and medical facilities.
“We’re very excited about bringing WRTA bus service to Warren,” said Dean J. Harris, executive director of WRTA. “This will be a tremendous benefit to Warren residents who need to go shopping, get to medical appointments or visit friends.”
The Warren Express goes through Girard and stops in McKinley Heights, Eastwood Mall, High Street NE and Park Ave., and Kent State Trumbull.
