HealthLine sees a healthy climb in riders; 10 millionth to be honored this week

04/27/11 | Tom Breckenridge, The Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- RTA will greet its 10 millionth rider on the HealthLine Thursday or Friday.It's an impressive number.

But even more impressive is the growing development along the streamlined, bus-centric street, officials say.

The head of RTA's citizens advisory board sees a lot of positives with the HealthLine. But the buses still aren't moving fast enough, said Brad Chase.

RTA reported last summer that the eastbound ride from Public Square to East Cleveland was averaging 40 minutes.

This week, the agency reported the ride was running from 30 to 39 minutes.
