RTA offering free rides systemwide to honor Veterans Day

(DAYTON, OHIO)… In honor of all active-duty military members and veterans, the Greater Dayton RTA is offering free rides systemwide to the public on Veterans Day, Saturday, Nov. 11, 2023. This is a continuation of the RTA’s 50th anniversary celebration with rides being free on all federal holidays and Sundays through the remainder of the year.

The RTA wants to make sure everyone who wants to participate in area Veterans Day events has access to transportation. This free service includes fixed-route buses traveling throughout the transit system, as well as rides on RTA Connect, the agency’s ADA paratransit service. 

RTA is proud to employ men and women who are dedicated to serving their communities and country. This year, to recognize those employees, the RTA placed posters with a list of all current RTA veterans throughout the agency. The agency honors its veterans and active military members through the Eugene A. Rhodes Veterans Memorial, which is located at 600 Longworth Street, Dayton.
