 'Take me out the ballgame' - Ride the Rapid to see the 2015 Indians

If you want to hit a home run with your wallet this summer, forget the high cost of gas and all that searching for a parking spot when you head for an Indians baseball game.

Let RTA's Rapid Transit service speed you on your way to Progressive Field without a hassle. You won't miss a moment of the action stuck in traffic from all that construction.

Park free (yes, FREE) at an RTA rail station, and ride the Red, Blue, or Green Rapid Transit lines to the Tower City Station.

RTA's 1,050-foot Walkway protects fans from traffic and the weather. The Walkway begins at the Tower City food court and ends in the lobby at Quicken Loans Arena – just across the street from Progressive Field. The Walkway opens at least two hours before each game, and remains open for 90 minutes after the game.

Rapid service home is also guaranteed for 90 minutes after the game – even if goes into extra innings in the midst of the pennant race. To purchase tickets for any Tribe game, visit Indians.com/tickets
