EMTA seeks public input

In 2018,Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority (EMTA) gathered public feedback through an online survey regarding its services and bus routes, including the 105 Corry Loop, which averages 67 riders per day. The survey can be accessed at www.ride-the-e.com/survey.

The Corry route of the Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority (EMTA) has been temporarily suspended due to a low number of ridership during the COVID-19 outbreak and stay-at-home order issued for Erie County.

EMTA's Route 105: Corry will be one of seven bus routes that will be temporarily suspended effective Monday, March 30.

Other routes that will be suspended for the time being are: Route 4: Liberty St.; Route 11: Harborcreek; Route 12: Albion; Route 23: Belle Valley; Route 24: McClelland; and Route 229: Fairview.

EMTA is suspending all weekend fixed-route service until further notice beginning this weekend, March 28 and March 29.

The LIFT will maintain its operations complimentary to the current operating fixed routes and medical clients, according to the EMTA.

However, weekend LIFT service will only be for medical transport.

A number of other routes will be operating on a Saturday schedule with weekday service only, such as Route 14: Edinboro; Route 16: North East; Route 21: Lawrence Park; Route 29: Fairview; among others.

EMTA apologizes for any inconvenience the temporary suspension of routes may cause.
