The Clevelanders for Transportation Equity and its leading spokeswoman Angie Schmitt say that RTA has confirmed that there is currently no funding to upgrade the Red and Blue-Green Line Rapid Stations at E. 79th St. Those upgrades are necessary for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

From today's post on OpportunityCorridor.com (the online home of Clevelanders for Transportation Equity):

City officials accused our group of misleading the public about this, but this statement confirms what we have been saying all along: If funding isn’t found for these stations, they will be forced to close.
