A happy Browns fan rides the Waterfront Line

CLEVELAND -- Woof woof! It's Browns time and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is the best way to get to the game.

If you are heading to FirstEnergy Stadium for a Cleveland Browns football game this fall, your first stop should be free parking at many Rapid stations. Then, buy an All-Day Pass for $5. It sure beats searching for high-priced parking.

All games are all served by RTA's Waterfront Line trains, which connect with all Rapid lines at Tower City.

How to ride the Rapid (trains) to see the Browns

  1. Park free at many of RTA’s Rapid stations.
  2. Red Line riders, buy a $5 All-Day Pass from a ticket vending machine inside the station. Keep it with you for the rest of the day. The pass is good until 3 a.m. the next day.
  3. Ride in comfort on any Red, Blue or Green line train into Tower City.
  4. From there, light-rail trains go directly to the Waterfront Line. Red Line customers can transfer to the Waterfront Line. Green and Blue Line riders, pay when you exit.
  5. Exit at the West Third Street Station, and walk across the street to FirstEnergy Stadium.
  6. After the game, rail service home is guaranteed for at least 90 minutes.
