> How to Find Your Route

PARTA offers you several different ways to plan your trip:

Using PARTA Schedules

  • Choose the schedule online or in print (available at Kent Central Gateway, PARTA offices, Portage Medical Center (formerly Robinson Medical Center), Portage County Administration Building (PCAB).
  • Locate your point of origin on the bus route and your destination.
  • You may need more than one schedule to get you from point “A” to “B” requiring you to make a transfer.
  • In extreme cases, you may need to take one route to a second route, and then transfer to your final route.
  • You will need to pay an additional fare for each transfer.  Check out tickets & passes to find out information about PARTA‘s fares.
  • Now that you know your route number, check out “How to Read a Schedule” to determine your pick-up and drop-off times.
