The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) mourns the loss of former Senator George V. Voinovich and celebrates his life of public service. 

APTA Chair Valarie J. McCall, who serves on the board of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority said, “Senator Voinovich was a strong and ardent champion of public transportation. He truly understood the role public transportation plays in the economic vitality of communities through his service as Mayor of Cleveland and Governor of Ohio. 

In the Senate,  he served as ranking member of the Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and the Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development.  Our condolences to his wife and family.”
