Allen County RTA to offer micro-transit

LIMA — Begining Monday, Oct 3. Allen County RTA will offer micro-transit service.

The service will run during the evening to supplement the transportation that was cut one year ago. The new transit service will be available on Monday through Friday from 7:20 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

The micro-transit service is a reservation-based personal vehicle service, like an Uber or Lyft, instead of the bus routes RTA formerly ran. Rides will start at $3 one-way.

Community members can schedule a ride by calling 419-222-2782 or 567-940-9445. An answering machine will be available 24/7 for reservations and cancellations.

Tickets can be purchased at the bus terminal so riders and drivers will not have to handle cash.
