Learn a little bit more...
The Red Line Greenway
In 1975 a gentleman named Duane Salls flew into Cleveland for a job interview. He took a train from the airport into downtown for the interview and what he saw on his ride was a disgusting mess; people were dumping garbage all along the train tracks. He vowed there and then that if he landed the job he would do something about it. Luckily he did get the job and in 1977 he and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) founded a non-profit called Rapid Recovery. The goal of Rapid Recovery was to clean up the train tracks from the airport to downtown so that future visitors to Cleveland would have a positive first impression of the City and daily riders would have a more pleasant experience. They asked organizations of any kind; for profit, non-profit, garden clubs etc., to adopt 200 feet of trackside and commit to cleaning it up.
