On Time Service Guarantee

RTA riders expect timely service and we promise to meet your expectations. If your service is early or delayed more than 30 minutes, we'll give you a complimentary fare.

The RTA On-time Service Guarantee is based on the following terms and conditions. If any portion of your trip is early or delayed over 30 minutes, you are eligible for a complimentary fare. To redeem your complimentary fare, you must submit a claim within 10 days of the occurrence. 

RTA has 10 days to validate your claim.  You can file a claim by visiting or by completing an On Time Service Guarantee Claim Card. Claim Cards can be picked up from a RTA Transit Ambassador or an RTA Transit Center: Wright Stop Plaza, East, West, South and Northwest.  Claim Cards can be given to any Transit Ambassador or you can mail to:  RTA On-time Service Guarantee Claim, 4 S. Main Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402.  

Pursuant to the ADA regulations on RTA Project Mobility Services, the "window of service" requirements apply to scheduling and pick-up.

The RTA On-time Service Guarantee does not apply to delays due to acts of nature, power outages or events beyond the control of RTA.
