Untitled[edit]

I don't know Cleveland, but just by guessing should this not be "it was the first direct rail-to-mass transit link to an airportin North America." ??? AlainV 20:30, 24 Jun 2004 (UTC)

  • Eeps, you're right! I fixed it. --Jfruh 02:13, 25 Jun 2004 (UTC)

rolling stock?[edit]

what does it use -- Geo Swan 11:47, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Route Mileage[edit]

The route mileage for the RTA rail system listed as 17 miles, is wrong. Route mileage for the total rapid transit system is actually about 32 miles. (check the international rapid transit data website for this as well as RTA's own website) 151.197.39.235 09:09, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Disagree with the name change[edit]

While the I admit that "RTA Rapid Transit" is redundant, the new title is misleading. "Rapid Transit Authority" is the name of the agency that runs transit in Cleveland, including buses. "Rapid Transit" is the specific brand name the RTA uses for the system comprising the Red, Blue, and Green rail lines. It's not our fault that the Cleveland transit names things redundantly, but as it stands now the new title implies that this article is about the agency that runs Cleveland transit, when in fact it's specifically about the rail lines. --Jfruh (talk) 15:08, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

In fact, I just realized that even the argument for redundancy is false -- RTA stands for Regional (not Rapid) Transit Authority. --Jfruh (talk) 01:11, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
Okay, perhaps the name change wasn't the best idea. Thanks for speaking up about it. -- backburner001 15:35, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Map Problems: West 65th-Madison (Eco-Village)[edit]

Just an FYI the current route map is missing the West 65th-Madison (Eco-Village) stop. The map must be from a year or two ago when the station was closed for renovations. Just thought you would like to know. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.232.162.33 (talkcontribs) .

Yes, you beat me to the punch about that map: I don't care for it, anyway, and the W. 65th station is missing (it should be where the West Blvd-Cudell stop is listed), which throws everything to the left/west of it out of balance. Can somebody fix (or junk) it? 141.151.23.197 02:27, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Euclidrender.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Euclidrender.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Subway[edit]

Is this a partly subway system or is it all aboveground? Should be in article either way. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.224.206.168 (talk) 18:12, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

  • The only places where it goes underground is at Tower City (Downtown) and Cleveland Hopkins Airport. Calling it a subway is quite a stretch.Hx823 (talk) 04:06, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
