RTA's Euclid Avenue HealthLine is faring well in ridership, innovation

11/29/09 | Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer

Ridership is stronger on the HealthLine because universities and other nonprofit institutions along the route have been relatively immune to the recession that began last year, say RTA officials and members of the agency's Citizens Advisory Board.The HealthLine is also attracting a new and larger audience beyond RTA's typical low- and moderate-income ridership.

"At the [Cleveland] Clinic, it's not just janitorial staff or cafeteria workers, it's doctors and nurses -- people in scrubs and suits," said Brad Chase, a project manager for the nonprofit Green City Blue Lake and a member of the RTA advisory panel, who rides the line to work several days a week.
