RTA announces special downtown services for RNC
The RTA has announced a special downtown service plan due to road closures and security areas during the Republican National Convention next week.
According to the RTA, frequency and service hours for the free trolley will be extended. Trolleys will run every five minutes instead of 10, and they'll be available from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m.
RTA bus routes will be modified due to street closures downtown.
Two transit hubs will be set up on the east and west sides of downtown, since buses cannot enter the RNC security zone around Quicken Loans Arena.
Other RTA notes:
- Rail service will be normal on all days. Service will be available to handle additional passengers, but the Waterfront Line will NOT operate on Sunday, July 17.
- HealthLine will operate on the regular schedule and route 24/7.
- The Cleveland State Line will follow a different downtown route and terminate at the Western Bus Terminal from July 18-21.
