CLEVELAND – Red Line rail service west of Tower City is being restored beginning at approximately 4 p.m. today, according to officials at the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA).

Buses will continue to replace trains east of Tower City, but rail service is expected to be restored gradually on the east side, as well, as rush hour continues this evening.

Additional service east of Tower City is available on the HealthLine, which serves Euclid Avenue between Tower City and the Stokes-Windermere Station.

Rail customers may also use the Blue/Green Line to reach E. 34th, E. 55th, and E. 79th St. Stations.

Buses had been replacing trains today due to a track defect that was causing damage to the rail cars. During morning rush hour, Red Line service frequency was modified from every 10 minutes to every 20 minutes.

RTA apologizes as repairs are made and service is restored to its normal schedule.
