RTA Considering Cutting Cost of Passes

(Cleveland) The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) wants to find ways to get more people to ride the buses and Rapid trains. They are proposing cutting the cost of all-day passes.

The passes, which now cost $5.50 for most passengers, would be cut to $5 under the proposal. RTA believes this could attract an additional 270,000 rides per year.

All-day fares for seniors and the disabled would be cut to $2.50, $7 for pararansit, and $4.25 for students.

RTA has also proposed selling one and two-ride passes that would also include free transfers. Those were previously available only in bulk purchases, usually by social service agencies.

All this still has to be approved by RTA's board.
