June 3, 2019

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Western Reserve Transit Authority has expanded its service to include connections to the Phyllis Beyers Regional Transit Center in Alliance, connecting the bus system in Mahoning and Trumbull counties to lines in Stark County.

“We have had requests from Sebring and Smith Township officials to find a way to transport residents to Alliance for shopping, medical appointments and hospital visits,” said Dean Harris, WRTA executive director, in a statement. “With our expanded Countywide service, these residents will now be able to transfer to the [Stark Area Regional Transit Authority] system at the Alliance Transit Center and get to any destination its routes serve in Alliance.”

Launched 10 years ago, the WRTA Countywide service is the busing system’s point-to-point transportation service. It operates Monday through Friday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Rides must be scheduled between 24 hours and seven days in advance. The fare is $3.50 each way and transfers to and from the Stark County system is free.

Registration or scheduling for the WRTA Countywide program is available by calling 330 744 8431.
