MEDIA CONTACT:  Jessica Olson (937) 425-8352, Communications Manager

The Greater Dayton RTA will temporarily close the transit center platform at Wright Stop Plaza and relocate the buses as city of Dayton contractors perform work on Jefferson Street, which is scheduled to start October 20 and last until approximately Nov. 20. All scheduled RTA routes and times will remain the same.  

During this scheduled work, all customers will board and exit the bus on Main Street and East Third Street (see bus lineup map attached). No parking will be allowed in these areas, and all meters will be bagged in order to accommodate buses. The following reroutes will be in effect:

Eastbound Buses: All eastbound routes will pick up customers on W. Third Street & Jefferson Street and proceed to the regular route.

Westbound Buses: All westbound routes will pick up customers on E. Third Street & Main Street. The route will continue left on Ludlow Street, turn right on 4th Street, then turn right on Wilkinson Avenue, and finally turn left on Third Street into the regular route.

Northbound Buses: All northbound routes will pick up customers on Main Street & Third Street.

Southbound Buses: All southbound routes will pick customers on Main Street & Third Street, in front of Courthouse Square.

Temporary signage as well as additional Transit Ambassadors and RTA staff will be on hand to assist customers and answer questions.  While the platform is closed, the concourse inside Wright Stop Plaza will remain open to the public. 

To track your bus and its arrival times during the closure, download Transit app, available in both the Google Play and App stores.
