    OHIO NEEDS TRANSIT NOW MORE THAN EVER
     
    Celebrate Ohio Loves Transit Week February 13 – 20, 2022
     
    KENT, OH – PARTA, along with Ohio’s other 67 public transit agencies, will celebrate Ohio Loves Transit Week February 13 – 20. This statewide initiative highlights the many ways that public transportation promotes vibrant communities by enhancing Ohio’s economy and quality of life.
     
    To raise awareness about the importance of public transportation, PARTA will engage with the community on its social media channels by thanking riders and sharing interesting facts about public transit. The agency is asking riders and other stakeholders to show their support by sharing why public transit matters with #OhioLovesTransit. 
     
    From rural counties to urban centers, public transportation keeps Ohioans moving. In Portage County, PARTA provides fixed route and demand response trips that are a vital link for older adults, people with disabilities, and others who need dependable transportation. PARTA connects people to jobs, medical appointments, grocery
    Stores, and more.
     
    “PARTA provides an indispensable service,” said PARTA General Manager Claudia Amrhein. “Public transportation is essential – we provide mobility options that allow riders to actively participate in the life of our community.”   
     
    Organized in 1975 under Section 306.32 of the Ohio Revised Code, PARTA provides fixed-route, ADA Complementary Paratransit and Demand Response service throughout Portage County.  PARTA also operates the Kent Central Gateway Transit Center and parking deck in downtown Kent.  In 2018, PARTA constructed the first Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station in Portage County.
