CLEVELAND, OH – Beginning Sunday, April 12, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is reducing bus and rail service by approximately 15% in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Communities and destinations currently served by RTA will continue to have service, but it will be less frequent.

The change comes as a result of a significant drop in ridership due to the Governor’s "Stay at Home" order related to the coronavirus.

"We must continue to serve our community, and for us, that translates into providing mobility options to take our customers to grocery stores, medical appointments and to essential jobs," said RTA CEO and General Manager India Birdsong. "The service will be less frequent, but Greater Clevelanders who rely on public transit will still be able to get to the same essential destinations on the routes they have come to rely on."

Of the 45 bus routes and rapid lines, 13 routes will not change. Most will see changes in weekday frequency only. Nearly all Saturday and Sunday schedules will remain the same. Frequency on the Healthline will be modified to 15 minutes on weekdays and 30 minutes on evenings and weekends. Park-N-Ride and Trolley service remains suspended.

Here is a complete list of all the new schedules by route:
