RTA along with its partners and supporters will unveil the first of 12 new trolleys as Cleveland readies for this summer’s Republican National Convention.

Members from the RTA, Downtown Cleveland Alliance, City of Cleveland and ward three councilman will be on hand to discuss new plans for this service which may include an expansion.
