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, hop aboard RTA's Healthline, or two-wheel it into town along a freshly painted bike lane. As the city looks forward, growing in terms of residents by leaps and bounds, intermodal transportation issues should be high on the list of concerns.

Sometimes, even the most adventurous resident can grow a little too comfortable living in the same city after a while.
