Toledo and TARTA considering adding a new station

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - The City of Toledo and TARTA are splitting the tab on a $200,000 feasibility and preliminary design study, to look into creating a single downtown bus transfer station along Jackson Boulevard and eliminating the downtown bus loop.

TARTA General Manager James Gee says the move aims to improve service and efficiency.

"We would save gas, we would save time which is wages. It would allow service to be more responsive. It gives us a better presence in a single spot in Downtown Toledo," said Gee.

The study could pave the way for a total transformation of Jackson Boulevard.

"That is one of our concepts, put 2-way vehicular traffic on one side or maybe put buses together and get rid of the boulevard altogether. There's a few different concepts, we're really studying that 4-block area up to Summit Street," said Robin Whitney with City of Toledo Engineering Services.

The study will determine the cost of the project and is expected to be complete within 4 months.
