Cleveland RTA to participate in EPA clean air project

Posted on May 9, 2002

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) will use ultra-low-sulfur fuel in community circulators as part of a new federally funded air toxics project. The RTA received a check for $25,000 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to be used for the purchase of ultra-low-sulfur fuel for community circulators in two neighborhoods. The project addresses pollutants from many sources, both indoor and outdoor, and tests practical and innovative ways to combat and reduce serious urban toxics. "We are pleased to be a test site for this promising new fuel," said Joe Calabrese, RTA CEO and general manager. RTA estimates a reduction in particulate emissions of 3.45 tons annually as a result of the program.
