Ohio transit proposes courtesy rules

Posted on January 14, 2010

At the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) January 13th board of trustees meeting, members reviewed a proposed Courtesy Rules Policy for SARTA Passengers and Patrons.

 

According to Kirt Conrad, SARTA’s CEO, “These Courtesy Rules will allow SARTA to improve the delivery of our service and provide an improved atmosphere on buses and at SARTA Transit Centers. We invite the public to give us their input on how we can improve the safety and security of SARTA.”

 

The rules outline what is expected of passengers on buses and at SARTA’s facilities. If the rules are adopted by the board, the Ohio Revised Code allows penalties for violating the rules that could result in being removed, barred or banned from all SARTA vehicles and facilities. Violators could also be criminally prosecuted.

 

Visit the SARTA Website for copies of the proposed Courtesy Rules.
