Public Transportation 

Getting Around Cleveland 

  1. Skip searching for parking and ride the train ('Rapid') or bus downtown. RTA's trains come to Tower City and buses to Public Square, steps away from where the race begins. Easiest and quickest option is take the train in & exit at Tower City. At the end of the race, walk a block back to Tower City or take the C-Line trolley on St. Clair back.

  2. Prices/Riding Options. The best option is an All-Day pass for $5. All train and bus routes are on There are ticket vending machines at all major stops or tickets can be purchased in advance by clicking here.

  3. Plan ahead to use RTA, call the RTAnswerline: 216-621-9500. Customer service reps can plan your route! Call M-F, 7 am. to 6 pm. and on Saturday from 8 am. to 4:30 pm.

  4. Direct train service from CLE airport: RTA's Red Line train is an easy ride away from downtown and only costs $2.25 one-way (sure beats a $40 cab ride!). At the Tower City (downtown, public square) exit, customers can walk to the Marriott Renaissance Hotel directly and are steps away from trolleys which connect to other hotels
