Cleveland’s RTA Red Line has been plagued by delays, due to record setting high temperatures over the past two days.
The delays left thousands of riders stranded on June 17th and 18th, causing delays of a half hour or more.
RTA officials reported temperatures into the 90’s caused over-head electric supply lines to expand and sag, causing them to lose contact with Red Line train cars below.
The incident caused the groups Clevelanders for Public Transit and All Aboard Ohio to bring up concerns over badly needed funding for the antiquated RTA system.
