BTA (Brunswick Transit Alternative) is a service of the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA), Medina County Public Transit, and the City of Brunswick.
BTA buses can be boarded at all regularly scheduled stops (map), and anywhere along the routes by simply hailing the drivers.
Free transfers to connecting routes are available to help you reach your destination. Upon boarding the bus, simply inform the driver that you wish to transfer to the next route.
All buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts and locks for access by persons with disabilities. BTA reserves the right to require boarding with wheelchairs compatible with the accessibility equipment. For special accessibility assistance, please call 844-722-3800.
Special needs (ADA)
The two buses that operate on the two fixed routes will deviate off the route up to 3/4 mile in either direction for an eligible ADA trip request (curb to curb service). Eligible ADA trip requests may be made by calling the ADA coordinator at 330-723-9670 within 24 hours or up to 2 weeks in advance of the scheduled trip. The photo ID card should remain with you at all times as it is universal and can be utilized on any other transit system in the U.S.
