The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) General Manager and CEO, Joseph Calabrese, alongside Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) President, William Nix, will join together in a visual message: Don't "X" out Public Transportation.

 

On Monday, 1:30 p.m. at Stephanie Tubbs Jones Transit Center (Prospect Ave, between E. 21st and E. 22nd), Mr. Calabrese and Mr. Nix will paint large Red Xs on several RTA vehicles to show what the elimination of funds would mean to RTA, if proposed federal budget cuts take away a possible 30% of transportation funding!!!

 

On Tuesday, September 20, Cleveland residents will see dozens of buses and trains around the system with the huge Red Xs. At Noon, on Public Square, there will be 'Don't "X" Out Public Transportation Rally on the northwest quadrant. 

 

Cleveland is one of more than a dozen public transit agencies participating in 'Don't X Out Public Transportation' around the U.S. to highlight what massive cuts would mean to transit systems and customers. For more national info, go to http://supporttransit.org/
