YOUNGSTOWN — Bus riders in the Mahoning Valley can enjoy a Valentine’s Day gift from Western Reserve Transit Authority: free rides on fixed-route buses Friday (Feb. 14).

WRTA, along with many other Ohio transit systems, is participating in Ohio Loves Transit Day, an annual event sponsored by the Ohio Public Transit Association.

“Ohio Loves Transit Day gives us the opportunity to thank WRTA riders for their loyalty, and also to welcome new riders who may not have used WRTA previously,” Executive Director Dean Harris said in a news release. “With our myStop Mobile and EZfare smartphone apps and other technological innovations, they’ll be able to see how easy and convenient riding the bus can be.”

Depending on the route, WRTA’s fixed-route buses will operate from as early as 5:10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, while Nightline routes will run as late as midnight. 

WRTA’s Countywide and ADA-All Access buses are not a part of the free promotion. Route and schedule information is available here.
