For Immediate release 

Cleveland, OH – Beginning on December 24, 2021, and extending until December 25, 2021, RTA will adjust its Holiday Rail Services.

To protect RTA employees and passengers, plastic shields known as BioSheilds have been installed on all buses, Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayers and the Moonbeam are used to clean our fleet, train stations and transit centers daily, temperature checking tablets are used by all employees prior the start of their shift and RTA continues to distribute masks to those who may need one.  

RTA apologizes for any inconveniences these adjustments may cause and ask our passengers for their patience.  For more information, please visit our website at
