You think the winter and potholes have been tough on you and your tires?
 
The RTA Triskett Bus Garage - the largest garage in the state of Ohio - replaces 20-25 tires a day because of potholes and wear and tear.
 
In the month of January alone, RTA spent an extra $100,000 because of the harsh wintry month. Maintenance in January was up 26% for RTA.
 
But riders should not worry about shouldering any financial burden due to the continued repairs. Officials said they should be able to handle repair costs for the rest of the year thanks to earmarked money in the budget.
