Cleveland could soon expand the fleet of extra-long buses zipping along its streets. The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is expected to vote in two weeks on whether to award a $16.3 million contract to New Flyer of America for 23 "articulated low floor coaches" -- 60-foot buses with accordian-like connectors in the middle. An RTA committee recommended the purchase Tuesday. The special buses are cost effective along busy routes because they carry more passengers. They are one of the main components of the HealthLine on Euclid Ave. RTA also uses articulated buses on Lorain Ave. (#22) and Detroit Ave. (#26). Five of the new 60-footers would be used on those routes. Another 18 are slated for the transit improvement project about to get underway on Clifton Blvd. in Lakewood and Cleveland.
