The Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA)’s downtown Transit Hub at 612 N. Huron Street will close for renovations in the coming days.
TARTA is preparing to close the Hub at 5 p.m. Memorial Day, May 30, with estimated reopening set for late July.
Planned improvements during this time include asbestos abatement throughout the building, and painting, floor, ceiling and insulation replacements in certain areas. Stough & Stough of Sylvania will serve as the architecture firm on the project.
“We appreciate the patience of our customers and community partners as we work our way through these improvements,” said TARTA CEO Laura Koprowski. “While we understand it’s an inconvenience, closing the building will allow us to get all the work done as quickly as possible.”
TARTA fixed-route buses will continue to line up outside of the Hub on Cherry Street and Huron Street as renovations take place. Customers will have access to the area outside of the Hub, including shelters and portable restrooms on Huron Street.
Customers will continue to have access to route information by contacting TARTA information operators at (419) 243-7433. All trips on TARTA vehicles remain zero-fare through July 31.
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.
