CASE STUDIES ON INCREASING TRANSIT REVENUES: CLEVELAND

Cleveland has a multimodal system: both heavy and light rail, a bus system, and paratransit services for the elderly and handicapped-a good portion of the program is contracted out to taxicab operators. The Cleveland Transit System (CTS) become part of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA). The years 1974 and 1976 were studied and figures are used to illustrate the percentage of passenger fares accounting for the system's revenue, the trend of average weekday ridership, the monthly passenger revenues, the sales tax receipts, and the comparison of operating revenues in 1974 and 1976.
