TECHNICAL STUDY OF MASS TRANSIT FACILITIES IN MAHONING AND TRUMBULL COUNTIES

THE TWO COUNTIES ARE SERVED, IN EFFECT, BY 37 SEPARATE BUS LINES: THE YOUNGSTOWN SYSTEM, THE WARREN SYSTEM, AND 35 SCHOOL-BUS SYSTEMS. THE PRESENT STUDY WAS DIRECTED TOWARD THE ECONOMIC AND OPERATIONAL FEASIBILITY OF CONSOLIDATING AND INTEGRATING THESE SYSTEMS. IN AUGUST, 1970 THE YOUNGSTOWN SYSTEM, FACED WITH A 73% DECLINE IN RIDERSHIP OVER A 10-YEAR PERIOD, CEASED OPERATIONS; AND THE MAHONING VALLEY REGIONAL MASS TRANSIT AUTHORITY ASSUMED OPERATIONS BY A LEASE AGREEMENT. MORE OVER, MANAGEMENT OF THE SCHOOL-BUS SYSTEMS IS CHAOTIC. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT A TRANSIT AUTHORITY BE FORMED, THAT NEW EQUIPMENT BE PURCHASED WITH FEDERAL ASSISTANCE, THAT BUS SERVICE BE IMPROVED, AND THAT THE SCHOOL-BUS SYSTEMS BE INTEGRATED INTO THE NEW AGENCY.
