Brunswick RTA bus route #451 to become the 251

rta busRiders of the #451 RTA bus at Laurel Square should expect a nomenclature change beginning March 1st. The bus route will be renumbered the 251.

GCRTA informed the City that the bus route itself will not change -- nor will the scheduled departure and arrival times. Also, the buses will continue to display "Brunswick" as their destination. They simply will no longer use the separate 451 designation when they travel beyond the Strongsville Park and Ride into Brunswick. In short, riders will see no change to the bus service other than the number, 251.
