The Public Transit Management Academy is a yearlong program open to all GCRTA employees. PTMA is run through a collaboration with Cleveland State University and includes 15 full-day classroom sessions in addition to extensive individual and team-based projects and presentations, delivered to 30 students per cohort. PTMA is intended to provide the necessary expertise to promote managers from within the organization, and focuses on leadership, management, and communications skills. Over the past few years, GCRTA has received several FTA training grants designed to improve PTMA and expand the program in the future.
