As of June 4, Ohio’s Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) and Lyft launched their new partnership, RTA Connect. RTA Connect aims to link rural riders (specifically those living in and around the Germantown, Farmersville, and Miamisburg areas) to RTA transfer points where there is faster and more frequent transit service, in order to provide rural users with greater transportation flexibility and accessibility. Through this program, riders can use Lyft to travel to/from these transfer points, and RTA will subsidize the price of connecting rides so that travel cost does not increase. Rides can be reserved via smartphone or by calling the RTA Call Center.
Pilot serves greater Dayton, Ohio (including the Farmersville, Germantown and Miamisburg areas).
