“Who rides the bus?” Riders could be your neighbor, co-worker or the lady behind you in line at the grocery store.
“How is SARTA funded?” SARTA is funded by a ¼% Sales Tax, Federal Grants, bus fares, contracts with agencies and the State of Ohio. About 80% of SARTA’s operating expenses are covered by the sales tax revenue. SARTA must renew the sales tax every five years, otherwise we would not be able to provide quality, reliable transportation to Stark County residents.
