Special to The Truth
After close to 16 months, Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA) routes will be returning to a revamped Summit Street in Toledo’s downtown area.
In support of greater mobility and access to different modes of transit throughout the region, TARTA applauds recent infrastructure improvements, including the Summit Street project. The work required extended detours for several TARTA fixed-line routes, which will return to their regular routes with stops on Summit Street on Monday, Sept. 13.
“TARTA is proud to play a critical role in the downtown Toledo transportation system and especially on a signature road such as Summit Street,” said Laura Koprowski, Deputy Chief Executive Officer at TARTA. “Increased public transit accessibility is crucial to the economic development and vibrancy of a downtown, so we are looking forward to TARTA being available again on Summit Street to move people to work or to enjoy a restaurant or anywhere else their day-to-day lives take them.”
Returning to Summit Street stops from detours will be routes 2, 5, 10L, 27, 28, 31, 32, and 34. Riders depending on these routes can visit tarta.com/routes for more information on stop location along Summit Street.
TARTA provides a vital link in the Toledo metro area to jobs, education, health care and other destinations. It enables everyone in our community to have access to transportation regardless of their age, race, physical ability or economic background. TARTA is underway with exploring and introducing new initiatives and service options that will enhance convenience and customer experience while moving our region into the future of public transit.
