WRTA shows off new buses

WRTA new buses

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Western Reserve Transit Authority is showing off some of its brand new buses.

They come with some new features, like a bike rack and stainless steel frames. In addition to the full-size buses, WRTA also got two new multi-purpose vehicles.

“It allows for our services to get to people at the outer edged of the county, get us out there more efficiently, and gives us room to haul the wheelchairs in this type of vehicle,” WRTA maintenance director Matthew Kontanchek said.

The government requires that each bus be replaced every 12 years. WRTA got eight new buses.
