Greater Cleveland RTA obtains TIGER II grant to upgrade University Circle station


The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) recently announced it received a $10.5 million grant through the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) II program to reconstruct the University Circle Rapid Station.

The project calls for adding walkways and bikeways between trains and buses to provide transit users a safer passage. Design is under way and scheduled to be complete in spring 2011. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2011 and take about two years to complete.

During the past several years, GCRTA has been working with University Hospitals, the Cleveland Clinic, Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Foundation and various municipalities to determine how transit service can be improved in the area.
