Posted by Web Staff - Email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO)  - Cleveland City Council members will be meeting with R.T.A. officials to discuss their circulator service and the proposed cuts.

Council members says there has to be another way to save money instead of cutting neighborhood routes.

The meeting between R.T.A. and Cleveland City Council will take place from 9 a.m. - 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Tuesday, riders and community activists from local poverty groups protested the proposed cuts at an R.T.A. board meeting.

Protestors say they understand R.T.A. needs to cut costs, but eliminating the circulator routes would create serious problems for poor Clevelanders who depend on the bus to get around.
