Fresh Fest Cleveland is back in 2021! This free festival is hosted in the Urban Agriculture Innovation Zone on Rid-All Farm and Otter Park. The mission of Fresh Fest Cleveland is to celebrate arts and urban agriculture, promote health and wellness, showcase fresh and local food, and break down barriers of the neighborhood while emphasizing unity.
From August 8th through October 2nd, GCRTA and RailWorks Track Services Inc. will be replacing the track structure on the Blue and Green lines from Buckeye-Woodhill station to Shaker Square. This section of track was last rehabbed in the early 1980’s. The Blue and Green lines, GCRTA’s light rail options, will be suspended during this time and replaced with 67R buses.
Bridge rehabilitation of this 31 span, 3400-foot-long Cuyahoga Viaduct structure crossing over the flats and the Cuyahoga River will allow riders to continue to have a safe and smooth ride across the largest asset in the GCRTA inventory. The almost 100-year-old structure will experience various phases of rehabilitation over the next 5 years to maintain safe use of the bridge into the next millennium.
On the afternoon of May 5, 2021, a young woman came to the Customer Service Information Desk and asked the Customer Service Staff Member, Travis if she could use our work phone to call her mother. This is not a normal request, so Travis talked to his Supervisor, Zakiya, to make sure this was ok. As Zakiya observed the young woman, she felt something did not seem quite right.

Despite the statewide mask mandate being lifted on June 2nd, GCRTA still requires all passengers aboard buses, trains, or at stations to wear a mask.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) along with the U.S. Department of Transportation are requiring masks to be worn on all forms of public transportation, in addition to hubs such as airports and stations.
