(DAYTON, OHIO)… All rides for active U.S. military members and veterans will be free on Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11, as the Greater Dayton RTA honors those who have served our country.  

This free service includes fixed-route buses anywhere throughout the Dayton transit system as well as rides on RTA Connect, the agency’s ADA paratransit service.  Anyone who is military active duty, discharged (DD-214), retired, reserve, or holds a VA identification card should show it to the driver upon boarding to receive a free ride on Veterans Day. 

The RTA will be running on its regularly-scheduled service hours for the holiday. For schedule information, visit our website at www.iriderta.org.
