Buses replace trains on part of the Red Line East Side service.

CLEVELAND -- As the two major West Side rail projects wrap up, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) moves ahead on a major East Side rail project.

Because the Cedar-University Rapid Station is being rebuilt, buses will serve the Cedar-University Station and the rest of the eastern section of the Red Line for two weeks, as the rail is shutdown for construction.

On June 9 and June 22, all East Side Red Line service -- between Tower City and the Louis Stokes Station at Windermere -- will be served by buses. From June 10-21, buses will serve all stations between Cedar-University and the Louis Stokes Station at Windermere.

Customers can ride the buses or the HealthLine on Euclid Avenue.

The HealthLine may be a more convenient option for customers during this time.

RTA apologizes for the inconvenience.

RTA provides quality, economic and safe public transportation via rail, bus and Paratransit throughout Cuyahoga County. Real-time information is available for all buses and trains. Check www.riderta.com or call the RTAnswerline at 216-621-9500.
