Blue & Green Line Rail Service Suspension

Aug 17, 2023

Beginning August 20 through September 30, 2023, 67R buses will replace the suspended Blue and Green Line rail service east of Tower City station due to track, signal, and station repairs. Last summer, the GCRTA Board of Trustees awarded $3.5 million in contracted work to support enhanced customer experience and safety improvements along the two rail lines.

During this six-week timeframe, GCRTA has also scheduled several additional light rail system improvements, to take advantage of power outages and warmer weather conditions. Among the improvements includes work at the Shaker Square Station consisting of repairs to the platforms, replacement of the station service building roof, system control boxes, several catenary pole suspension/pullover bands, and replacement of a signal transformer amongst other enhancements to the lines.

Upon completion of the project, riders will experience more reliable service throughout the Blue and Green Lines.


Replacement 67R bus service will be available operating to/from Green Road via Van Aken Blvd. and Warrensville Center Road. See the map route provided for details.

Replacement 67R buses will operate every 15-minutes during weekday rush periods, and every 30-minutes all other times. Please look for the orange colored 67R bus stop signs along the route to board the replacement bus. The Blue/Green Line will reopen on Sunday, October 1, 2023.
