RTA Statement Regarding CDC’s Return-to-Work Guidelines

CLEVELAND, OH -- The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) has been deemed an essential service by the CDC and the State of Ohio, and as such, continues to provide an essential 24/7 service to people who must get to medical appointments, the grocery store and essential jobs during the COVID-19 surge.

As more and more people return to work, RTA customers can rest assured that RTA remains committed to adhering to the cleaning protocols instituted even before one case of COVID-19 was reported in the State of Ohio, and to those safety measures adopted every day since.

RTA remains a safe, viable option for those who prefer public transportation or for those who have no other transportation option for their daily commutes.

In either case, we have been encouraging commuters from Day 1 to partner with RTA by adhering to social distancing guidelines, and to use their own face coverings, gloves, hand sanitizer and whatever else helps them feel safe while traveling, shopping or working with the general public.

To continue to assure the safety and health of both customers and operators, here are the additional safety measures underway:
