CLEVELAND, OH -- The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is launching its system redesign study today by posting an online survey so riders and non-riders can share their thoughts about public transportation in Cuyahoga County. The survey will be available over the next six weeks.
Led by Jarrett Walker + Associates, a US-based firm specializing in designing metropolitan public transportation systems, the system redesign study will review and create a plan for the bus system network throughout Cuyahoga County.
“This is a critical time to reshape the direction of public transportation throughout the county,” said Interim CEO and General Manager, Floun’say Caver. “We’re very proud to partner with Jarrett Walker + Associates in this survey, which is an important first step to help RTA create the service that will meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs.”
Responses to the survey will be used in the transit network redesign study, which is one of five studies currently underway at RTA that, combined, will be used as the framework for RTA’s Strategic Plan. “We’re aggressively looking at every facet of our transit delivery process so that we can best meet the changing transportation needs over the next 20 years,” said Caver.
RTA is reaching out to municipalities, civic organizations, colleges, universities and other potentially interested groups to encourage participation in the survey.
RTA is asking the public to participate in the online survey by visiting www.riderta.com/systemdesign.
