Meetings set regarding students taking RTA to school

(Plain Press, July 2004) Middle school students and their parents who live outside the Cleveland Municipal School District ’s walk zone are urged to attend one of three informational meetings next week to learn more about transportation to and from school via the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA).

This fall, just over 1,700 students will make the switch from riding traditional yellow school buses to riding RTA due to the District’s recent budget cuts. The informational meetings will focus on bus rider rules, guidelines and safety.

The informational meetings will take place as follows: Tuesday, June 29th at 5 p.m. , at Rockport Library, 4421 West 140th Street ; Wednesday, June 30th at 4p.m. , Lee-Harvard Library, 16918 Harvard Avenue ; and, Thursday, July 1st at 1:30 p.m. , Memorial-Nottingham Library, 17109 Lakeshore Blvd.

RTA officials will join representatives from the District’s transportation, safety, security and other departments at these meetings. A question-and-answer session will be held to help middle school students and parents make a smooth transition when it comes to getting to and from school in the fall.
