GCRTA Helps Champion Cavs Celebrate

When an estimated 2 million people poured into downtown Cleveland June 22 for the parade and rally celebrating the Cleveland Cavaliers’ victory in the NBA Championship over the Golden State Warriors—the city’s first sports championship in 52 years—the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) was there to provide more than half a million rides. APTA Chair and RTA Board Member Valarie J. McCall participated in planning the parade and had a front-row seat for the event from her office in City Hall. CEO and General Manager Joe Calabrese said the single-day ridership was “by far the highest in RTA history,” adding, “Every bus and train was jammed, from before 6 a.m. until after 7 p.m. All parking lots were overflowing, and lines to ride our rail service stretched for blocks.”
