WRTA Announces End of Service for Warren Routes

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Western Reserve Transit Authority will end its fixed-route service in the city of Warren next month.

In 2020, the WRTA received a $1 million grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation to fund a demonstration of fixed-route service in the city. But the grant has expired, and ODOT did not renew the funds needed to maintain the service, according to a Friday news release.

The last day of service for the Warren routes – 70 Southeast, 71 North, 73 West, 74 Elm and 76 North Jackson – will be Sept. 8.

The change does not affect the service on the 28 Warren Express, which will continue to operate and connect the cities of Warren and Youngstown, the release states.

For possible alternative transportation, contact Trumbull County Transit at 330 675 2873.
