Ride RTA, It's the Easy Way!

Riding RTA trains is easier than ever before. And with the crowds we're expecting downtown during the Festival, it's definitely the easiest way to get to Tower City Center.

There are 8,000 FREE RTA parking spaces located throughout the area. We've highlighted key stations for you on the map below.

The Red, Blue, and Green train lines of the Rapid Transit system provide direct service to Tower City Center. They operate seven days a week until around midnight. During the CIFF, RTA will extend rail service on Friday 3/21, Saturday 3/22, Friday 3/28, and Saturday 3/29 to accommodate patrons who attend late screenings. On those evenings, Red Line (westbound), Red Line (eastbound), Blue Line, and Green Line trains will depart at 1:35 a.m.

For information about routes and schedules, please visit www.rideRTA.com/ciff or call the RTAnswerline at 216.621.9500.

Free RTA Downtown Trolleys

If you want to get around downtown, simply hop on one of RTA's free downtown trolleys. They run every day with routes that put more restaurants, bars, and parking options within a quick ride. Here's a trolley route map: http://www.riderta.com/sites/default/files/pdf/maps/System_Map_Trolleys.pdf

Rack-N-Roll: Bicycles on RTA Trains and Buses

Bike racks are located at the RTA Tower City Station in both the Red Line and Blue/Green Line boarding areas.

Bicycles on Rapid Transit Trains: Just roll your bike on and stand with it. An adult must accompany anyone under the age of 18 with bicycles. No more than two bicycles are permitted per rail car, with space available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Bicycles on Buses: 100% of RTA buses have bike racks that can hold two or three bikes. Just signal the bus driver before boarding, and load your bike on the exterior bike racks. If the exterior bike rack is full, please wait for the next bus.
