Metro RTA Looking for Your Input on Route Changes

Written by

Metro RTA is looking to reoganize their services and the lines that run through Summit County by 2019...

But before a plan is in place, Metro says they want your input on how their routes should look. 

That is why they're hosting a series of open houses with the idea that residents from Summit County will come and offer their ideas on where bus lines should run, how often, and more. 

Valerie Shea, Director of Planning and Development at Metro RTA, tells us the last time they've looked at the system as a whole was in the mid-90's and that development patterns, job locations, and where people live and work have changed since then, so it's time to take a look at different options. 

Below is a list of when and where the open house events will be held:

• Tuesday: 6 p.m. at the Barberton Active Adult Center/YMCA, 500 W. Hopocan Ave., Barberton. There will be a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m.
