Cleveland - The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority announced Tuesday that Park-N-Ride service on all three routes will be restored Monday through Friday at a 30-minute frequency beginning Monday, August 10th.
Park-N-Ride service was suspended March 24th due to COVID-19, when the majority of Downtown office workers began working remotely. The original Park-N-Ride service frequency was approximately every 15 to 30 minutes.
The announcement came at a meeting of the Operational Planning & Infrastructure Committee of the RTA Board of Trustees, where RTA staff presented additional service and schedule adjustments that will take effect August 9th. Those service changes will increase frequency on selected bus routes in time for expected increased ridership in the fall.
“We know that our Park-N-Ride customers will welcome the news that this service will be back up and running. We believe the 30-minute frequency will be sufficient to accommodate commuters who will be returning to their Downtown work locations this fall,” said RTA’s Chief Operating Officer, Floun’say Caver, Ph.D.
To date, at least 25 RTA employees has tested positive for Coronavirus, 13 have fully recovered.
