Saturday-only service set to begin March 18 to Edgewater Park
This spring, RTA will offer Saturday service to stops within the eastern section of Edgewater Park. The western portion of the park is already served Monday-Saturday by all trips of the Cleveland State Line.
It is part of the March 12 service change, so the first time that buses on the Cleveland State Line will stop there is Saturday, March 18. Hourly service begins at 6:16 a.m. The last westbound bus leaves at 8:16 p.m., and the last eastbound bus leaves at 8:20 p.m.
Buses will pull off the West Shoreway at the main entrance to the park, on West 73rd Street. After stopping at a bus stop sign, they will continue along the entrance ramp and finish their route.
This trial service may be increased or discontinued, depending on ridership.
On Saturdays, the Cleveland State Line operates between the Westgate Transit Center in Rocky River and the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Transit Center near Cleveland State University.
In 1894, the City of Cleveland bought Edgewater Park, and in 1978, it became part of Lakefront State Park. In 2013, it was merged into the Lakefront Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks.
