Perk Signs RTA Legislation

December 30, 1974, legislation established the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority. On September 5, 1975, a transfer agreement was implemented that would put all of CTS's assets and property into the control and name of RTA. Leonard Ronis was named the first General Manager. During its first year, the RTA was averaging a ridership of 356,000 riders a week- a 65% increase from the final years of the CTS.
