Cleveland RTA receives $175K grant

Posted on November 9, 2011

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) received a grant for $175,000 from the Cleveland Foundation.

The money will be divided into three different projects for RTA. The largest portion, $100,000 will help improve Transit Oriented Development (TOD) along the Red Line. RTA is working closely with Ohio City Development Corp. to create a plan for this growing area to maximize work and housing access to buses and rail for commuters, as well as create development opportunities.

The second project, utilizing $35,000, will fund a sustainable commuting program for Clevelanders, starting a pilot program with a large local employer. The goal is to find unique ways to encourage this company's employees to use RTA instead of their cars for their work commutes.

The third project will use $40,000 for art and visual development around the future Mayfield Rapid Station.

The full $175,000 grant comes from the Cleveland Foundation's Greater University Circle Initiative and is part of the livable communities initiative.
