RTA is extending FREE weekend rides through New Year’s Day

(DAYTON, OHIO)… With gas prices remaining high – the Greater Dayton RTA wants to encourage community members to save money by using public transit by extending its free summer weekend rides through January 1, 2023.

There is a lot happening on the weekends, whether you’re making an essential trip or attending an event, the RTA wants to ensure equitable access to community members. The free weekend rides will apply to both fixed-route and paratransit services every Saturday and Sunday through January 1. Riders will get to reap the benefits of extended weekend hours as the RTA now proudly serves Montgomery County every day from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. on most routes.

“With the RTA now offering the same level of service seven days a week, we felt free rides on the weekends would be a great way to get folks familiar with using RTA and providing them with a reliable transportation option for all their weekend needs,” said Bob Ruzinsky, RTA CEO.

To find route times, customers can plan their trip using the free Transit app, or find their route schedule at www.iriderta.org.
