With Your First Pick – Take RTA to the NFL Draft

Apr 22, 2021

CLEVELAND, OH – Make the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) your first pick to attend the NFL Draft next weekend.

Beginning Wednesday, April 28, RTA staff will be on hand at Cleveland Hopkins Airport to assist fans with taking the Red Line rapid Downtown. Volunteers will be at a specially designated “welcome table” at the Red Line station through Thursday providing directions and customer service for those coming to Cleveland.

And with the festivities kicking off Thursday, April 29 and continuing through Saturday, May 1, RTA is encouraging fans to park for free at our rail stations, use the RTA mobile ticketing app to buy a $5 All-Day pass and ride any rapid to Tower City. It is a short walk from there to First Energy Stadium and the many nearby venues where the NFL Draft events are planned.  Rapid transit service continues until midnight.

RTA offers a free B-Line trolley from Tower City that operates from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, but we're adding Saturday to that service for the NFL Draft, with a stop at Lakeside and East 9th. For convenient access to Destination Cleveland's Rock the Clock End Zones sites, the HealthLine is one option, serving Euclid Avenue between Public Square and Playhouse Square and points east, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Please visit www.riderta.com to plan your trip or for details on routes and schedules. You may also call 216-621-9500 Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. or on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Please remember, masks must be worn while riding RTA.
