Ride Right in Perrysburg by early July

PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Ride Right is coming to Perrysburg. City council met and approved the contract with the transportation company Tuesday night.

Ride Right is hoping to provide public transportation to Perrysburg residents as soon as possible. Approving the contract was the last step in the process.

City council worked alongside the Go Perrysburg transit committee and the administration to come up with the details of the contract.

Council members say the best thing about this partnership is there's a level of communication. They can change the routes, the hours, and they will have more control over the type of transportation being offered in the city.

Ride Right will tentatively be operating in town by early July, but they're aiming for sooner.

"They're working on finalizing their lease for their new space…getting vehicles in, getting drivers hired," explained Councilman Todd Grayson. "Those are all challenges they're working through."

Perrysburg voters passed the transportation levy needed for the service earlier this month.
