'Park-N-Ride' is back! RTA also announces Trolley will resume on August 9

The beloved downtown Cleveland staple will be making new changes to combat COVID-19

CLEVELAND — All aboard. 

The Regional Transit Authority (RTA) has announced that its Park-N-Ride service, along with the famous Trolley, will be coming back to downtown Cleveland starting August 9. 

However, the RTA will be making changes to account for cleaning and social distancing protocols. 

The Park-N-Ride will operate on a new, 30-minute-schedule, while the trolley will run every 15-minutes and make E-Line stops that include areas in the Warehouse District.

"We know that our Park-N-Ride customers will welcome the news that this service will be back up and running," said RTA’s Chief Operating Officer, Floun’say Caver, Ph.D, "We believe the 30-minute frequency will be sufficient to accommodate commuters who will be returning to their Downtown work locations this fall." 

The RTA says that they will be monitoring ridership through the fall to adjust scheduling. 

The services originally shut down in March to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
