Brad Chase, a regular rider and head of RTA's Citizens Advisory Board, said Calabrese has been a strong leader through tough times.
Most transit systems are still cutting services, while RTA is expanding some routes, he said.
"That bodes really well for Cleveland," Chase said.But Calabrese's team needs to make improvements, he said. Bus and train stations need more and easier-to-understand information about routes and fares, he said.
The transit agency should also consider fare cuts, he said.
"We have some of the higher fares in the country," he said.
