RTA Taking Steps To Improve Bus Safety

CLEVELAND - In case of emergency, Cleveland bus drivers hope to get the help that they need much quicker, 19/43 News reported.

RTA hopes to land a contract worth $700,000 -- money that will be used to build a "new command center" for police dispatchers.

The need for a new command center comes in the wake of two recent RTA shootings.

One of the shootings happened at East 116th Street last week. A man robbed a passenger on the bus, and then shot the 20-year-old in the stomach.

Police are still searching for the person responsible.

A Richmond Heights teacher also survived a shooting on another RTA bus in Euclid.

As 19 News told you last month, police were able to arrest the man suspected of shooting the woman in the head.
