“At GCRTA, we’re always moving forward. Fueled by our newly refined Mission and Vision, we’re teaming up with our community partners to support Greater Cleveland—one stop at a time.”

Our Mission: Connecting the community

We’re staying healthy.

We partnered with Cuyahoga County Health Department and the Care Alliance Health Centers of Ohio to help stop the spread of COVID-19 through our Community Immunity effort. By transforming the Community Bus into a mobile vaccination clinic, we removed barriers to immunization—bridging the equity gap with innovative, accessible healthcare. This initiative was made possible with funding from ODOT.

We’re building police partnerships.

Our Transit Police Department paired with local and national organizations to support and elevate the Greater Cleveland community.

Our Mission and Vision keep us moving forward. And with the support of our community partners, we’re confident that an even more connected Greater Cleveland is straight ahead.

Let’s take better trips.

“By applying sweeping improvements to our entire system, we’re taking riders farther, faster—with safety and sustainability leading the way.”

We’re building
the Next Generation.

Our job: getting you to yours. That’s why we launched NEXT GEN, a rider feedback-based redesign aimed at adding more routes and more frequent service to connect even more of Greater Cleveland. Since June of 2021:

We’re continuing to adjust to rider needs with new routes and route expansions to expand Cleveland connectivity.

Providing a better ride starts with an optimized transit system. With redesigned routes, expanded infrastructure, and updated amenities, we’re ensuring trips are safe and smooth, every stop of the way.

Let’s enhance the experience.

“We wouldn’t be GCRTA without our riders. So we’re making each transit experience smoother, simpler, and safer to better support those who keep us going.”

We’re proving
our worth.

Our State of Ohio Senators and Representatives maintained our $70M biennial budget towards rehabilitation projects and programs that directly benefit riders. To continue improving rider safety and comfort, they expanded TRAC funding eligibility to allot us an additional $4.5M towards our upcoming Light Rail Reconstruction Program.

We’re getting creative.

As part of his “I Love the City” Campaign, world-renowned artist WRDSMTH designed three murals on GCRTA structures—two in Tower City and one in the E. 120th substation—thanks to grant funding from Graffiti HeArt, a local art group. And we’re creating a mural based on Laurence Dunbar’s “We Wear the Mask” as part of the Woodhill Homes CMHA Project. We’re partnering with neighborhood community groups, Graffiti HeArt, Land Studio, CMHA, and Elevate the East to complete the mural by April of 2022.

We’re getting
a new ride.

In 2022, our new HealthLine fleet will hit the streets. Each new vehicle is ADA accessible and comfortably seats 45 passengers while running on low-emission Compressed Natural Gas. New features include:

  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Real-time route, news, and weather updates
  • Interior and exterior security cameras
  • Pedestrian Turn Warning System

We’re dedicated to giving our riders the best. With enhanced amenities and more supportive service, we’re ready to take this show on the road.

Let’s travel farther.

“At GCRTA, every member of our team helps push us forward. That’s how we do more than take you from point A to point B—we’ve got employees with major drive.”

We’re seeking
smooth operators.

158 new Bus Operators joined our fleet thanks to the efforts of the Human Resources, Training, Operations, Marketing, Service Quality, I.T., ITS, OEO, and Transit Police teams in hosting two successful operator recruitment fairs.

GCRTA employees are the pulse of everything we do, because connecting the community is more than an action—it’s a Mission. And our team takes it to heart.
