With another stretch of icy weather approaching the area, the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA) reminds customers to plan their trips accordingly, as accumulation of snow and ice may make road conditions hazardous.
Meteorologists are calling for 1-to-3 inches of snow and an accumulation of ice late Thursday and early Friday. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect in Lucas and Wood counties from 4 p.m. Thursday until 9 a.m. Friday morning.
TARTA will run on a normal schedule through Level 1 and Level 2 snow emergencies in Lucas County and Rossford. Huron Street lineups at the downtown Toledo Transit Hub may move to Cherry Street if it’s determined that road conditions on Huron Street are unsafe.
Customers can keep themselves updated on changes by following tarta.com or TARTA social media channels, and media outlets will also be notified of any service changes.
TARTA services would only be modified and possibly suspended in the event of a Level 3 Snow Emergency.
