Riding the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) bus makes great sense and cents. By taking the bus even some of the time, you’ll save hundreds of dollars a year on gas, parking, and car maintenance. You can use the time on the bus to read, chat, balance your checkbook, or just relax and leave the driving to someone else.

It's easy to get started
Pick up a route map at any RTA Transit Center or call the Call Center at 226-1144, and a map can be sent to you; or go online at Greater Dayton RTA and click on "Route Directory." Each route map includes the timetable (or schedule) for all buses that travel on that route. (Please note that schedules do not list all bus stops, so you will need to find the major stop listing closest to where you will catch the bus.)
Customer service representatives on the RideLine can also assist you in determining how and where to catch the bus you need. Be five minutes early – all watches and clocks do not agree. When you see the bus coming, stand near the sign so the driver knows you want to ride. Enjoy your trip!
The newest convenience for RTA riders is the recently opened Wright Stop Plaza Transit Center. The center provides a new, comfortable, centrally located facility for RTA riders to catch buses and arrive downtown from one of the 19 surrounding communities served by RTA.!
