Several changes to Greater Dayton RTA service will take place next week, including the loss of a trip on the route serving Procter & Gamble and a new stop near Hollywood Gaming.

Three routes will see changes beginning April 10, the regional transit authority announced. RTA said the adjustments on routes 8, 22 and 43 are “in response to the needs of customers, communities and businesses.” The changes, as described by the authority, are as follows:

Route 8: Service to the Northwest Transit Center will now begin out of Wright Stop Plaza at 4:11 a.m. on weekdays.

Route 22: Times on southbound weekday trips will be adjusted by 2 to 4 minutes at all stops between the Towne Center stop and Wright Stop Plaza. All northbound times from the Gateway Shelter to Webster Street will be adjusted by 1 to 2 minutes on weekdays.

Stops along Route 22 will also be added at Wagner Ford and Neff Road in both directions, and along the southbound route at Brentlinger Drive and Hollywood Gaming and at Hopeland and Stewart streets.

Route 43: The 2:50 p.m. weekday trip will be changed to leave Wright Stop Plaza at 2:39 p.m. to service Spectrum Brands. The 11:27 p.m. service from Wright Stop Plaza to the P&G facility in Union will now service P&G at 11:48 p.m. and the 12:24 a.m. trip from P&G to Wright Stop Plaza has been removed.

Other routes are currently undergoing changes due to detours. The route servicing Wright-Patt, X1B, is under a detour through approximately June 12. Buses on Hoover Avenue between North Gettysburg Avenue and Guenther Road are under a detour through Aug. 15. A detour in Miamisburg is slated to end this month.
