RTA Collecting Canned Goods, Asking you to "Get On Deck" For Opening Day

Cleveland - The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) will collect money and canned goods from 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday, April 1st at the Tower City Rapid Station (lower level Rotunda) in support of this year's Harvest for Hunger campaign.

Customers and baseball enthusiasts heading to the Indians Home Opener via RTA can drop off their donation with volunteers from RTA and the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

RTA is also asking you to stay ahead in the count and avoid $30+ in parking fees by taking their public transportation to the game. Here are some tips from the Regional Transit Authority to make your day a Grand Slam:

  • Use RTA's parking locater and park for free at a Rapid Station. (Be sure to park legally so that you're not ticketed and towed.)
  • Buy a $5.50 All-Day Pass for maximum convenience and value. Use the RTA CLE mobile ticketing app to purchase your ticket on your mobile device.
  • Or $5 cash will buy you a round-trip ticket, good for your trip to the game and the ride home after a Tribe victory. Special round-trip tickets are available at the Brookpark, Puritas, Triskett, and West 117th Street stations, as well as the Tower City Station on the Blue/Green Line platform.
  • Ride the Rapid to the Tower City Station, and stroll down the 1,000 foot Walkway to Quicken Loans Arena. From there, it is a short walk outside to Progressive Field. The Walkway opens 2 hours prior to each game.
  • You can also ride the HealthLine down Euclid Avenue to Public Square. If you work Downtown, hop on a free trolley to reach Tower City, then make your way to the Walkway or ballpark from there.
  • Red Line, Green Line and Blue Line rail service runs until about midnight. (For late night games that go into extra innings, rail service operates for 60 minutes after the game ends.)
