Alcoa partners with Cleveland transit

Posted on September 29, 2008

Cleveland-based Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products has partnered with the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) to equip their fleet with new wheel technology.

RTA’s 78 new Gillig buses will feature Alcoa Dura-Bright wheels with XBR technology. Previously, this had been an all steel wheel fleet. With the change to Alcoa aluminum wheels, RTA will experience the benefits of aluminum wheels, including one-piece forged strength, lower maintenance costs and a reduction in fuel costs due to the lighter weight of the wheels, according to Alcoa.

The rollout of the new buses will take place over the next three years.
