RTA is 45 years old this year, and the Cleveland International Film Festival is 44 -- that's a great partnership.

The 2020 Festival is March 25-April 5. We suggest that you comb the CIFF Program Guide, chose the movies you want to see, and plan your trip Downtown on RTA.

There are a number of easy and convenient ways to get to the Tower City Cinemas. RTA’s Red, Blue and Green Line 'Rapid' transit trains will get you inside Tower City* and just a short walk from the theaters. Parking is free at RTA stations and several stations are conveniently located near exits of I-71, I-90, I-480 and I-271

RTA’s HealthLine runs 24/7 on Euclid Avenue and stops directly across from the JACK Casino, adjacent to Tower City. Several other bus routes run 24/7 as well.

RTA’s green trolleys operate around the Downtown area, including Playhouse Square, Cleveland State University and the Warehouse District. And best of all, you can ride for free with a smile. Trolleys operate on different routes with different hours during the day, evenings and on the weekends.

Plan Your Trip

Transit App

Download the free Transit App to plan your trip and track your bus or train in real time. Available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. See all available apps here.

Buy your Farecard

It's always a good idea to have the exact fare. Dollar bills are accepted.

Fare  Price
Bus or Rapid, cash fares, one-way $2.50
All-Day Pass $5.50
Seniors (65+) cash $1.25
Seniors (65+) All-Day Pass $2.75

Proof of Payment on the Red Line 

Fare payment on the Red Line is made at the red Ticket Vending Machines at each station. Purchase or activate your farecard at these machines, and retain this ticket until you exit the system. Fare inspections can occur on the Red Line, and all HealthLine operators will ask to see proof of payment when you board.

For the Blue and Green Line trains, pay as you exit Tower City from all westbound (inbound) trains. For eastbound (outbound) trains, pay when you board at Tower City.
