(CLEVELAND) - The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is giving parents a break from taxi-duty this summer. The “GO RTA” summer fun program allows up to three children 12 and under to ride RTA free when accompanied by a fare-paying adult, age 18 or older. The promotion runs between Saturday, June 10, and Sunday, Aug. 6.
“RTA is connecting the dots this summer and making it cheaper and easier for those who want to see the sites, tour local destinations and just be on vacation without ever leaving town,” said RTA CEO and General Manager Joe Calabrese.
RTA announced the program outside the museums at University Circle. RTA is also partnering with local businesses to give discounts to people who ride RTA to get there.
“By showing your RTA fare card or mobile ticket, you can get discounts at many restaurants and venues in the area,” Calabrese said. Plan your trip to participating partners here. They include:
- Cleveland Museum of Art, Museum of Natural History, Western Reserve Historical Society, Botancial Gardens, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
- Blackbird Baking Co., Daily Press, Dewey's Coffee, Fear's Confections, Happy Dog, Melt Bar & Grilled, Merwin's Wharf, Passengers Cafe, Piccadilly, Pour Cleveland, Qdoba, Tremont Scoops, Tabletop Cafe, The Wine Spot
- Greater Cleveland Aquarium, Great Lakes Science Center, 41 North Kayak Adventures, Vision Yoga
- Cleveland Clothing Co., Cleveland Cinemas
- Special events and give-a-ways at the Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Public Library, Edgewater Live, EucFest, Parade the Circle, and Wade Oval Wednesdays
