RTA Opens Health Line

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority will open its new Health Line, linking downtown Cleveland and University Circle October 24.

Clevelanders traveling between the city’s commercial and cultural hubs can have a positive impact on climate change by switching from their cars to one of the new low-emission hybrid RTA buses that will take only 20 minutes to travel the corridor. New stations are at convenient locations along the route.

“We encourage our grantees and others to demonstrate their commitment to a more sustainable and healthy city by getting out of their cars and using public transit,” said David Abbott, executive director of The George Gund Foundation.

Information about weekend festivities marking the opening of the Health Line as well as schedule and fare information is available at www.rtahealthline.com.
