RTA’s Fiscal Challenges

Posted Tuesday, July 8, 2008

With gas prices up and the economy down, people are having a hard time living within budget. So is the Greater Cleveland RTA, and something has to give. At the very time when more people are turning to public transportation, cutbacks in service and higher fares might not seem like the solution. But RTA execs say it's their only choice. Join us for a conversation about the future of the rapid and bus routes that are meant to keep us moving but may be joining the sluggish economy. That's Tuesday morning at 9 on 90.3.
