TARTA board approves all-day 'lineup' schedules

Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority buses will begin leaving downtown Toledo on coordinated “lineup” schedules all day long in early January under a plan approved Thursday by the agency’s board of trustees.

TARTA staff presented the proposal to public hearings in October, and public opinion was “overwhelmingly positive,” James Gee, the authority’s general manager, told the trustees before their unanimous vote.

Buses will leave the Jackson Street lineup half-hourly during the morning through early lunchtime and during the afternoon rush. During the early afternoon, when ridership typically tails off, the 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. departures will be skipped.

Several route changes also will take effect when timetables change Jan. 7. TARTA will reduce its total operating time over all routes by about 50 hours per day, which Mr. Gee said will save the agency about $400,000 per year.
