Cleveland RTA breaks ground on $18.5M transit center

Posted on September 20, 2012

Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) broke ground on a new, fully accessible transit facility near Case Western Reserve University that will serve as one of Cleveland’s busiest bus transfer centers.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is providing more than $14 million for the project, including $10.5 million through DOT’s Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant program.

The RTA’s aging Cedar University Station and bus terminal, built in 1956, will be razed to make way for the new station, which will improve pedestrian and bicycle access and be fully compatible with the Americans with Disabilities Act, making it easier for people with disabilities to take transit. A portion of land surrounding the station will be converted into parkland. Construction is expected to be completed within two years.

The total cost of the project is $18.5 million, with additional funds provided by local sources, including the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency and a group of local businesses led by the Cleveland Foundation, including University Circle Inc., Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals and the Cleveland Clinic.
