County Commissioners Learn More About Transit Services


For over 50 years RTC has offered services to community members in Logan County.

RTC Transportation is celebrating Ohio Loves Transit Week and was joined by Logan County Commissioners Mike Yoder and Mark Robinson for a ride-along on Tuesday.

They learned about all the services RTC Transportation offers to Logan County Residents.

Transportation is essential in keeping Logan County moving, connects people to essential jobs, and allows the aging population independence.

Last year, RTC served Logan County residents with 62,594 trips covering 652,471 miles.

Transportation is provided throughout Logan County, and they also offer out-of-county service (within a 100-mile radius of Logan County) on a limited basis.

They are a Door-to-Door Demand Response service offered to all citizens and visitors of Logan County regardless of age or income status, meaning they pick you up at the door and deliver you to your destination door.

They transport ambulatory (those capable of walking) and non-ambulatory (those in wheelchairs); but cannot transport emergency or semi-emergency passengers, or those requiring transport in a reclining position.

RTC Transportation also provides transportation to day programs and work for individuals eligible through a local county board of developmental disabilities.

One of the biggest benefactors of the United Way of Logan County, RTC receives over $60,000 in grant funds each year to aid the cost of transportation for Logan County citizens.

Yesterday, the Commissioners helped draw a name for a $25 credit for transportation services.

The winner of that credit was Arquimedes Aguirre.
