Feds award Ohio’s TARTA $3.49M for paratransit buses

Posted on July 20, 2011

TOLEDO, Ohio — A “State of Good Repair” grant will enable the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA) to replace 38 of its paratransit vehicles and five of its oldest regular-route mini-buses, toledoBlade.com reported.

TARPS, the paratransit program that provides door-to-door rides for people with disabilities, has been the fastest growing part of the TARTA system, with ridership increases in each of the past 15 years, including growth from 137,000 in 2008 to 220,000 last year. While it has added buses to the TARPS fleet over the years, increasing demand has kept vehicles more than 20 years old in service. For the full story, click here.
