CLEVELAND – The RTA is urging Cleveland sports fans to take the rapid or a bus into downtown if they’re going to one of three major sports event being held Saturday, August 23.
The Browns, Indians and Gladiators are all hosting home games that start between 7 and 8 p.m., and that has Cleveland expecting 100,000 sports fans coming into the city at the same time.
RTA Marketing Supervisor Pat Kearney told NewsChannel5 those who have never taken the rapid or bus to a downtown sporting event shouldn’t be apprehensive.
Kearney believes the rapid, at $5 per round trip ticket and free parking, is an excellent value that may actually save fans some time compared to driving in their own personal vehicle.
“They probably spend an hour driving around trying to find a parking place, so technically this could be the quicker way to go. You can just go to the rapid and get on, and we will be providing extra service,” explained Kearney.
