TARTA asks for public input on proposed service changes


TARTA wants to know what you think about its proposed changes. 

There public hearings are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss changes to the transportation service.

These changes include increased bus routes for all TARTA weekday fixed-line services to every 30 or 60 minutes during the daytime in downtown.

The current route connections occur every 30 to 50 minutes in the evenings and weekends.
