Buses (66R) replace trains on the Red Line
Work on the tracks over the new Little Italy - University Circle Rapid Station has been hampered by storms, and is taking a little longer than expected. So, 66R buses will continue to replace Red Line rail service between the Cedar - University Rapid Station and the Louis Stokes Station at Windermere. We appreciate your patience and support. We are all looking forward to the start of regular Red Line service.

RTA Quarterly Service Changes
As of August 17, 2014, the timetables for several transit routes that service University Circle will be adjusted.  Please visit the RTA website for more information on these changes.
Little Italy – University Circle Rapid Station
RTA broke ground in October 2013 on the new Little Italy – University Circle Rapid Station on Mayfield Road.  The new station will replace the existing E. 120th Street Station and is expected to open in fall 2015.  The $17.5 million station features a single platform headhouse and entrance plaza, complying with current ADA requirements, a heavy-duty elevator and stairway from the street level up to the platform and waiting areas, and several public art components that will both illuminate the station and better blend the station with the adjacent neighborhoods.  The station will provide more direct connections to the Little Italy business district and the rapidly developing Uptown neighborhood.
RTA Launches Red Line / HealthLine Extension Study
RTA is exploring options to extend the Red Line and/or HealthLine east into Euclid, closer to the Lake County line. RTA and their consultant team began a study the week of September 10th with a series of public meetings and will continue to seek public input throughout the planning process.  For more information on the study and public engagement opportunities, visit
