New RTA Wayfinding Signage

873305221_c8ca1a3d9d_o1Are you interested in improving the functionality and aesthetics of RTA’s wayfinding signage? Well, now’s your chance to influence the design process.
The Transit Improvement Advisory Committee (TIAC), a sub-committee of the RTA Citizen Advisory Board, will have it’s monthly meeting this Friday, Oct. 2nd from 8:30-10:00 am at RTA’s main offices on W. 6th St. in the Warehouse District.
Ongoing areas of focus for the committee this year are system wide ease of use and facilitating more cyclists to use the system. The Oct 2nd meeting will focus discussion on the first implementation of wayfinding signage as part of RTA’s TWE (Transit Waiting Environment) program. This first implementation is at the Market Square stop on the corner of W. 25th Street & Lorain Avenue. Vince Reddy, Chair of the TIAC, has taken extensive photos of the implementation and the committee will discuss them in the context of best practices from around the nation/globe.

The committee has extended an invitation out to anyone in Cleveland’s design community who has an interest in wayfinding and schedule signage to attend this Friday’s meeting and subsequent meetings, which are held the first Friday of each month.
