Greater Cleveland RTA

Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) operates 7 bus routes, the Euclid Avenue HealthLine (bus rapid transit) and the Red Line (heavy rail) routes to and through the district. The HealthLine offers convenient service to Fairfax, Midtown, Campus District, East Cleveland, and Downtown. The Red Line offers direct service to Downtown Cleveland and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. RTA also provides Paratransit service for people with disabilities.

Transit App

Transit App

The Transit app provides real-time arrival info for RTA’s buses and trains as well as the BlueLink, GreenLink, Heights AM & Evening South shuttle routes. Launch “Go” to get step-by-step navigation from Daniel, a friendly British robot. You can also plan a trip and set reminders.


Vanpool

Vanpool is a good option for people who want to take transit but do not leave near a bus or train line. RTA’s newVanShare program subsidizes the cost of participating commuters who begin or end their trips in Cuyahoga County. A vanpool is like a carpool but with at least 5 people sharing a van on a contract basis. Vanpool networks extend the transit network beyond its current bounds, while offering similar costs and benefits.
