Street routes have returned to SEAT


By Staff Report

Zanesville’s local transit authority, South East Area Transit (SEAT), has begun offering riders street route services once more.

The service was temporarily interrupted when the virus forced the agency to switch to demand-only services.

According to Katie Harrah, Marketing and Media Coordinator for SEAT, the agency is thrilled to be offering the highly utilized service to local residents again.

“All our riders are excited that the street routes are back,” said Harrah. “So many people reached out to us and expressed their appreciation.”

The service returned on Monday, October 4, and the transit authority hosted a customer appreciation event on Friday, October 8, to let riders know about the return as well as provide them with a free lunch.

Harrah added that just in the past week, the service has seen great response.

Masks will still be required to be worn and hand sanitizer will be readily available. Everyone will be required to sit six feet apart.

Until the end of the year, all street routes will be fare-less, completely free to all riders.

For those who still need on-demand response, Harrah said the agency asks to be notified 24 to 48 hours in advance to ensure a timely pickup or dropoff.

That offering especially helps their older or disabled riders. Many use the service to get to work, Harrah added.
