[LEFT]In conjunction with the rollout of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) system redesign next month, all rides on buses, trains, Park-N-Ride coaches and Paratransit vehicles will be free from June 13 to June 19.

No fares will be collected and no passes will be required from Sunday through Saturday that week, the first week of operation for new and expanded routes across town. This is the so-called '[/LEFT]Next Gen RTA[LEFT],' systemwide route modifications which were created with the assistance of national transit consultant Jarrett Walker and after extensive rider feedback.



One of the major goals of the redesign is to provide higher-frequency transit service on popular routes and to important destinations, significantly reducing wait times during weekday commutes.

"This promotion allows us to offer opportunities to new riders to see what Next Gen RTA has to offer," said acting CEO and General Manager, Floun'say Caver, who's got the RTA reins for the moment while CEO India Birdsong is on maternity leave. "It's also our way of saying thank you to our current customers as we work hard to provide greater frequency and greater connectivity."[/LEFT]

Any thoughts on this? Is the network redesign pretty sensible in addressing previous issues?

I will never understand why the 39 down Lakeshore from Euclid to downtown is still only every 30 minutes and only for AM and PM rush hours. Zero weekend service. Why is there no good way for everyone in North Collinwood through Euclid to go downtown??? Looks like I'll continue to drive.

Guess the Trolley thing is pretty much over, down to just the B...

The routes aren't bad, the major routes seem to have decent frequency. But overall, I still don't think it's great. Most of the region remains with bad frequency and transit is not the best option for most.

Fair enough. I'm hoping they expand the downtown Trolley one way or another as things get back to normal or new normal.
