The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is partnering with the community to develop a new Strategic Plan that will shape the “Framework for the Future” and guide the agency to the year 2030. RTA’s customer focus is demonstrated by continual infrastructure upgrades and several ongoing planning initiatives. However, several challenges create uncertainty on the path ahead: decreasing ridership in line with national trends; limited and reduced funding; aging infrastructure; and emerging technology and mobility disruptions.

Strategic Plan Overview

The Strategic Plan will reflect RTA’s internal strategic vision, changing conditions, and community input. The Plan includes analyses of existing conditions, priority corridors, capital projects, infrastructure repair, transit technology, and new mobility. A transit needs assessment highlights strengths, weaknesses, trends, opportunities, and other key issues. The Pillar Study analyses and conclusions, including the System Redesign Study, the Economic Impact Analysis, the Fare Equity Study, the Rail Car Replacement Study, and the Financial Analysis and Economic Forecast, will be incorporated into a cohesive plan. The planning team will also create prioritized strategies to achieve key recommended objectives. These will include considerations of equity, sustainability, funding scenarios, infrastructure needs, public-private partnerships, transit network, fare policies, and costs.
