New Shuttle, “The Flyer,” Takes the Streets

Mike Colvin Downtown Progress

The Greater Dayton RTA’s newest service will provide free, fast connections for thousands of workers and students between downtown Dayton and the University of Dayton campus with the launch of The Flyer shuttle service.

The Flyer provides easy access to offices, local dining, nightlife, entertainment, parks, hotels, parking, and all that downtown Dayton has to offer in 10 minutes or less. Three “green fleet” hybrid buses run on a continuous loop to provide quick service, and each vehicle is trackable through RTA’s real time products, including the free Transit app available for download in the App Store or Google Play.

RTA has planned a public launch party on Courthouse Square for Friday, November 9, beginning at 10 a.m. After the Nov. 9 launch, The Flyer buses will run Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Saturdays from 4 p.m. to midnight. For more information about The Flyer, visit
