Public Transportation Funding Faces Shortfall In Cleveland, Statewide

State funding for public transportation is a fraction of what it once was and now covers less than one percent of cost borne by regional transit agencies. Many other states cover up to 20 percent. Plus a new change in federal regulations means even fewer dollars. So what's the solution? Higher taxes? Consolidation? More service cuts? Discussion with Greater Cleveland RTA boss Joe Calabrese and rider advocate Akshai Singh.
