YOUNGSTOWN — The Western Reserve Transit Authority will have two informational meetings for Warren residents to learn more about the fixed-route bus service that will soon begin serving the city.

The public meetings will take place at 2 and 6 p.m. Wednesday (Feb. 5) at the Warren Scope Center, 375 N. Park Ave.

Attendees will be able to see maps and schedules of the new Warren routes, learn how they can change from one bus to another and find out how to get unlimited daily or monthly rides on any WRTA bus with an All-Day or 31-Day Pass. WRTA officials will be on hand to answer any questions riders may have, according to a news release.

Six new Monday through Friday fixed routes will begin operation within Warren on March 2. In addition, the existing 28-Warren Express route, which runs hourly between Federal Station in downtown Youngstown and Warren’s Public Square, will be expanded to serve Mahoning Avenue and the Kent State University Trumbull Campus.

The new WRTA service in Warren is made possible by a state grant.
