DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is going to temporarily reduce its services.

To balance the reduction of manpower availability due to pressures from absenteeism and lower ridership, RTA will be scaling back its services.

The temporary adjustments are as follows:

  • Route 1: 40 minutes
  • Routes 2, 4, 12: 45 minutes
  • Route 7: 34 minutes
  • Route 8: 28 minutes
  • Route 9: 42 minutes
  • Route 11, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19: 100 minutes
  • Route 34: 90 minutes

Night Frequency 6:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.

  • Routes 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 9, 12: 75 minutes
  • Route 11, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19: 100 minutes
  • Route 34: 90 minutes

RTA said routes 22 and 43 will operate on a normal weekday schedule and the frequency on route 55 and the Flyer will not change. Sunday service is not impacted by these changes.
