CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Cleveland State University has secured naming rights for a new RTA bus rapid transit (BRT) line connecting CSU to West Shore communities.
Service is slated to begin in November, RTA and CSU announced Wednesday.
The new route will offer commuters an upgraded ride on new, specially-designed vehicles fully branded for CSU.
Stations connect commuters traveling from the downtown campus through Cleveland’s West Side along Clifton Boulevard and with branch routes connecting multiple West Shore communities.
The Cleveland State Line will provide these students and all passengers a faster and more reliable commute.
The line will replace RTA’s Route 55 family of services with specially designed, 60-foot articulated buses and increased travel speeds.
This will double the line’s ridership capacity. During rush hour, riders will wait no more than 10 minutes for a bus at any stop on the line.
