Like sharks, we humans gotta move. And in Northeast Ohio, that typically means hopping in a car and heading out on the open road. More and more, though, Clevelanders are swapping conventional for alternative. Inner-ring commuters are leaving the SUV in the garage, instead choosing to ride the light rails or hop aboard RTA's Healthline, a fleet of environmentally friendly buses. Bike lanes continue to get painted onto new city streets. There's even talk of a high-speed rail that will connect Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland.

The needs of all of those groups are being taken into consideration as a new transportation center is being planned for downtown. To be located near the North Coast Harbor, the intermodal complex will serve pedestrians, bike riders, motorists and rail passengers.

Ohio owed much of its prosperity in the mid-19th century to the Ohio & Erie Canal. What will the next great transportation idea be?

grrl power: encouraging more female riders key to city's cycling health

If women indeed are the barometer of a healthy cycling city, then making women feel safe while cycling in Cleveland must be a priority, say local biking advocates. Female riders are less likely to cycle without infrastructure that makes them feel safe, including separated bike paths and physical barriers on roads that divide bikes and cars.
