PARTA Bus Routes

Bus Routes Remain the Same for Phase 2 Construction

(UPDATED: Feb. 9, 2017)
One-way, one-lane eastbound traffic is scheduled to begin on East Summit Street, between Fraternity Circle and Lincoln Street, during the week of Feb. 27, 2017.  This traffic pattern will continue through November.  The current PARTA bus routes will not be impacted by the traffic pattern change. 


PARTA Announces Changes to Some Bus Routes for Fall 2016 Semester

  1. NEW: Route 54, Summit Street Express – This service will run from the Dix Stadium up Summit Street to Campus Center Drive to the Kent Student Center. The return trip will be Summit Street to Dix Stadium. 
  2. Route 56, Downtowner – Due to extremely low ridership on this route, this service will no longer operate.
  3. Route 58, Summit East/Front Campus (Monday-Friday) – Buses will run up Summit Street to Loop Road. This route will provide service back to Whitehall Terrace and University Townhomes (service to these two stops was recently restored as part of PARTA’s summer route).
