The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) will receive $20.3 million as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

Those funds are included in $1.3 billion in federal dollars that Ohio will receive for public transit agencies over the next five years, GCRTA officials said in a press release.

Ohio urban and rural transit providers are set to gain $260 million in fiscal-year 2022, with $73.5 million available immediately and the rest available later in the year. The funding represents the "beginning of the largest investment in Ohio’s public transportation ever," said U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).

“This funding will assist us in strengthening our transportation network and associated infrastructure,” said GCRTA General Manager and CEO India Birdsong.
