RTA announces positive financial outlook for remainder of year.

The Greater Cleveland Transit Authority will substitute bus for rail service on the Blue and Green lines east of Tower City for six weeks beginning at the end of the month. From June 28 through August 8, 2020, the agency will work on a track construction project between E. 55 and Woodhill on the Blue Line and the Green Line.

RTA will use 67R buses traveling along a special route during the construction, and operate to/from Green Road via Van Aken Blvd. and Warrensville Center Road. (please see map below).

The buses will not stop at the Tri-C-Campus District Station, or at the E. 55 station, but those wishing to go to these areas can get there via the Red Line. The buses will stop, though, at Woodland-E. 55 and Woodland E. 79. The Tower City stop is at W. Huron at W. 3rd. St. Along the route, stops will be identified with 67R bus stop signs.

Rail service on the Waterfront line will operate every 30 minutes during the closure, and Regular Light Rail service will be restored on Sunday, August 9, 2020.
