The Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA)’s Board of Trustees has approved several service changes for the spring, including the extension of fixed-route service to Spring Meadows Place shopping center in Holland.
Beginning Sunday, March 26, TARTA’s Route 32 will travel to Spring Meadows, with other slight modifications to the route’s stops on Airport Highway. As Route 32 expands, so does the coverage area for the TARPS paratransit service. Customers living within ¾ of a mile of Spring Meadows are now eligible for TARPS.
TARTA has also approved a new route, No. 33, with stops including TARTA’s Transit Hub, the University of Toledo’s College of Medical and Life Sciences, and Walmart on Glendale Ave.
Route 28 will no longer run beginning March 26. Much of this route will now be covered by Route 33, and some portions are covered by other existing TARTA routes.
These changes are taking place as other service enhancements related to the TARTA Next redesign project are put into place, including the upcoming launch of the TARTA Flex microtransit pilot program. Plans for the upcoming years include fixed-route service to Oregon and increased frequency of service on heavily-traveled routes.
