Schedules, Fares & Maps
The RTA Fixed Route bus system consists of 7 regularly scheduled routes and 6 routes on Saturday. RTA's Fixed Route service operates six days a week, 359 days a year with individual route times varying by season. LACRTA uses a flag stop method for the bus to stop. Simply stand by the curb of one of our bus routes and raise your hand to flag down the bus as it approaches. Do not approach the bus until it has made a complete stop and the doors open. If there are passengers alighting from the bus, stand back and allow them to clear the step well before you enter the bus.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) mandates equal opportunity in employment, transportation, telecommunications, and places of public accommodations for individuals with disabilities. As a local transit provider, the ADA had a significant impact on the kind of services LACRTA offers. As such, the LACRTA offers complementary paratransit service, know locally as UPLIFT; fixed route buses provide special accommodations for the disabled; the Transfer Station is ADA accessible; and more.

LACRTA and the STAR SPANGLED SPECTACULAR!
On July 4th RTA provided FREE rides to the 21st Anniversary of the Star Spangled Spectacular! Between 1:00 and 11:00 p.m., RTA buses took passengers to Faurot Park from the St. Rita's Medical Center parking lot at the southeast corner of W. Market and Collett streets and returned them when they were ready to leave. Thank you RTA drivers and staff for helping to make Lima's Star Spangled Spectacular spectacular!
LPD and RTA
To increase the sense of safety for riders on RTA buses as well as at the transfer station, LACRTA has developed a partnership between LACRTA and the Lima Police Department (LPD). RTA will keep you informed about the partnership, here on the website. Recently, a LPD canine unit, an officer and his dog, allowed RTA to photograph the team. Meet Patrolman Randy Tigner and his canine, Rocky.
