CLEVELAND -- Officials of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) estimate they provided about 46,000 rides on St. Patrick's Day -- about half the number as 2012.

With the parade being on Sunday this year - and the weather much colder - fewer people headed downtown in 2013 than last year on RTA.

Check out RTA's Facebook page for great photos from St. Patrick customers on RTA.
