In 2013, TARPS completed 320,390 passenger trips, a 7% increase from 2012. The continued increase in demand for these services created the need for a dedicated TARPS facility. Features of the 80,000 sq. ft. green building’s design include a geothermal heating and cooling system, solar panels, skylights, reflective roofing and earth sheltering for energy efficiency. A biodiesel fueling station for public fleet vehicles is on the site as well.
TARPS operates in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and this service covers the same big area our full-size buses cover: all of Toledo, Maumee, Rossford, Ottawa Hills, Sylvania, Sylvania Township and Waterville.
