CLEVELAND -- The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) announces a weekend change in Red Line service.

The rail line will be closed all service times starting Saturday, June 29, through the end of service on Sunday, June 30.

Replacement buses are always provided when trains are not in service.  RTA apologizes for any inconvenience this construction may cause.
