Cleveland transit agency looks at expanded service

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland’s mass transit agency is holding public presentations on proposals to extend bus or commuter rail service to the city’s eastern suburbs.

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is holding the sessions Monday in East Cleveland, Tuesday in Cleveland and Thursday in Euclid.

The expanded service proposals include extending a commuter train line, more dedicated lanes for stretch buses or a combination.

The East Cleveland and Euclid mayors are backing the proposal as a way to spur economic development and improve transportation to the big University Circle-Cleveland Clinic job centers.

According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, the consultant analyzing the ideas is looking to see if there would be enough riders to warrant the cost of expanding service.
