Cleveland RTA ridership up

Posted on January 18, 2012

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) carried more than 46 million riders throughout 2011 — nearly a 4% increase since 2010.

In just December of 2011, RTA had an increase of 12.5% more riders this year than the same month in 2010. On the Red Line specifically, more than half a million riders used this heavy rail service, making it the highest December Red Line usage since 1988, according to RTA officials.

The good news continues on the HealthLine, Cleveland's bus rapid transit system, with a 14% increase from last December, and for a year-long increase of nearly 8%.

Trolley ridership was also up this December, an increase of 19% from last year.

December 2011 marked the eighth month in a row of increased ridership throughout the RTA system.
