From 8:00pm Friday, March 20, 2009, until 4:00am Monday, March 23, 2009, Blue and Green light rail service will be shut down for necessary track maintenance. Light rail trains will be replaced with shuttle buses for the entire length of the lines, between Tower City and Green Road and Warrensville/Van Aken.
Shuttle buses will stop near all rapid stations, and will run on a schedule approximately equal to the light rail. Boarding and discharge at Tower City will be at the Trolley stop on Euclid Avenue near Ontario Street.
While delays will be kept to a minimum, the shuttle buses will be running on streets with signals and additional traffic, so travelers should allow extra time to reach their destinations.
The Waterfront Line will be running its regular weekend schedule between Tower City and South Harbor.
Regular light rail service will resume with the start of service on Monday, March 23, 2009.
As we head into spring, RTA will be performing more frequent and extensive rail maintenance, and additional shutdowns should be expected. Advance notice of such shutdowns will be posted at the affected stations and on the Riders' Alerts page at http://www.rideRTA.com/ .
RTA regrets any inconvenience to its customers during this time.
