RTA Locks in Mobile App for Three More Years

Cleveland, Ohio – Mobile ticketing is here to stay.

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority decided Tuesday to keep its mobile ticketing app for at least three years.

RTA launched the RTA CLE app as a pilot program in July to give riders the ability to pay fares from their phones.  That program proved to be successful, transit officials said.
