Enjoying music at the Shaker Festival.

CLEVELAND -- The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is partnering with the Shaker Heights Art and Music Festival to promote riding the Blue Line on Saturday and Sunday, June 22-23, 2013.

On Saturday only, June 22, from 10 a.m.-10 p.m., customers can buy a special hand stamp at either the Shaker Heights Art and Music Festival OR the Larchmere Porchfest for $1 and then ride the Blue Line between Shaker Square and Farnsleigh (or Warrensville-Van Aken) to attend both events for no additional fare.

The $1 hand stamps will be sold at the Shaker Heights Info Booth, and the Larchmere Porchest Info Booth, 12629 Larchmere Ave.

Green Line riders note: Construction is scheduled at the Eaton Station grade crossing on the Green Line, so Green Line customers will be served by buses between Green Road and Shaker Square this weekend, June 22-23.
