CLEVELAND — Starting this Sunday, June 28, through August 8, the Greater Cleveland Rapid Transit Authority (RTA) will be replacing Blue and Green Line rail services with buses. 

The change is due to a six-week RTA track construction project between E. 55 and Woodhill. 

67R (rail replacement service) buses will follow a special alignment during this shutdown, operating to/from Green Road via Van Aken Blvd. and Warrensville Center Road. 67R buses will not stop at the E. 55 station or the Tri-C-Campus District Station. Riders wishing to access these areas can use the Red Line. 

There are additional 67R stops at Woodland-E. 55 and Woodland E. 79. The stop for Tower City is located on W. Huron at W. 3rd St. 

Look for the orange 67R bus stop signs along the route. As with all rail replacement service, 67R buses are fare free.

Waterfront Line rail service will operate every 30 minutes during this shutdown.

Regular Light Rail service is scheduled to resume with the start of service on Sunday, August 9, 2020.

In addition, RTA has also posted new schedules that are available on a number of routes for the summer service change that begins June 28.
