Free 'Flyer' Enters Service in Dayton Neighborhoods

Thousands of workers and students in the Dayton, OH, area can now make free, fast connections between downtown and the University of Dayton campus with the recent launch of the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority’s (RTA) free shuttle, The Flyer.

“It’s fast, it’s frequent, it’s free and it connects all things downtown to the University of Dayton campus and neighborhoods. The Flyer is the best way to explore all that Dayton has to offer,” said RTA Chief Executive Officer Mark Donaghy.

Flyer service began following a public launch party and ribbon cutting on Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton. The continuous loop route operates with three hybrid buses, providing access to locations including offices, local dining, nightlife, entertainment, parks and hotels in 10 minutes or less. Premier Health and CareSource sponsor the service, along with a partnership with the University of Dayton, Downtown Dayton Partnership and city of Dayton.

Dignitaries including RTA CEO Mark Donaghy, fifth from left, cut the ribbon to introduce service on the agency’s new free shuttle, The Flyer.
