(DAYTON, OHIO)…The best way to safely travel to and from the Dayton Art Institute Oktoberfest this weekend is the free RTA shuttle.

With so little parking on the streets around the event, boarding the shuttle at any one of a dozen stops downtown is your best choice for Oktoberfest parking, said Jessica Olson, marketing manager for the Greater Dayton RTA.

“The RTA shuttle eliminates traffic and parking headache for those planning to enjoy the event this weekend,” she said. 

The RTA shuttle will circulate during the Lederhosen Lunch on Friday, Sept. 23 from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.  The RTA continuous shuttle runs on Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. 

“The Greater Dayton RTA is proud to be an important part of this event,” said Olson.   “We know it’s the Dayton Art Institute’s main fundraiser.  We’re happy to do our part to support the DAI and help to keep our citizens safe,” he said.   

RTA shuttle riders should look for the bright shuttle stop signs from the Oregon District, west along Fifth Street, north on Main Street, Second Street, Wilkinson and Monument.  There is no charge to ride the shuttle.  Oktoberfest revelers may board the bus at any stop along the route.
