RTA adds extra service for March Madness

RTA adds extra service for March Madness

Downtown Cleveland will be buzzing with NCAA Tournament basketball fans when Cleveland State University hosts the Sweet Sixteen at The Q.

RTA hopes to make traffic easier by adding extra evening Red Line services to The Q on Thursday and Saturday, March 26 and 28.

The Red Line will run every 15 minutes on those dates.

The Blue and Green Line will operate regular service both days.

RTA will also operate rail service for 90 minutes after the last game ends both Thursday and Saturday.

To get to the Q, park for free at any Rapid Station, buy an All-Day Pass and ride the Red, Blue or Green line Rapid train to the Tower City Station. From there, you can stroll down the Walkway, right into your seat. The Walkway remains open 90 minutes before and after the game.

You can also board the HealthLine at any westbound station along Euclid Avenue, exit on Public Square at Tower City and head for the Walkway.

The C-Line Trolley serves Downtown Cleveland from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. weeknights and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to take riders to restaurants and hotels from the Warehouse District to Playhouse Square.
