Clevelanders push for public transit funding with rally, march
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - In a push for public transit federal funding, advocates took to the streets Sunday afternoon with a rally and march in Cleveland.
The demonstration began at 1 p.m. at Public Square in downtown Cleveland, according to a news release from organizers.
Attendants marched to Sen. Sherrod Brown’s office and Greater Cleveland RTA Headquarters.
According to the release, they are calling on Congress to fund public transit and pass the full Build Back Better Bill.
“The Ohio transit coalition has spent the last nine months organizing for adequate funding for clean, reliable, and accessible public transit as part of federal infrastructure legislation,” the release said.
