Cleveland RTA hearing
Transit Authority holding public hearings on rate hikes, route cuts.
by WKSU's M.L. SCHULTZE


Web Editor
M.L. Schultze
 
The first hearing on proposed transit service cuts and rate hikes for Cuyahoga County public transportation service drew a crowd in Cleveland last night service. U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich was among those attending the hearing. He told officials that the RTA should be lowering fares and extending service instead of increasing fares and cutting routes. Other transit riders said they don't like the fare increases but would prefer paying more over having services cut.
