RTA Offers Convenient Service to Tribe Games.

CLEVELAND -- The Indians open their home season at 1:05 p.m. April 8 at Jacobs Field. This season, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) again offers fast, convenient bus and rail service to all Indians' home games.

BUS SERVICE: RTA provides "Gateway Flyer" bus service from seven locations -- Euclid Park-N-Ride, Solon Square, Parmatown Mall, Strongsville Park-N-Ride, Brecksville Municipal Parking Lot, Great Northern Park-N-Ride lot, and the Westlake Park-N-Ride lot. Buses leave these locations 60-65 minutes before game time. Fans can park for free, pay $1.50 each way, and be dropped off across from Jacobs Field on Sumner Avenue. After the game, buses will be waiting there to take fans back home.

For many weekend games, RTA will take fans to Jacobs Field with luxury coaches. These buses feature high-back reclining seats, overhead storage racks, tray tables, individual reading lights, air-conditioning vents, and are handicapped accessible.

RTA also provides regular bus service to Jacobs Field and Tower City.

RAIL: Fans can park free in more than 7,000 spaces at RTA rail stations, and take the Rapid Transit to the game. RTA offers rush-hour level service before each game, which means the trains run every few minutes. At night, train service from Tower City is guaranteed for at least 90 minutes after the game ends.

WALKWAY: RTA's 1,050-foot Walkway protects fans from traffic and the weather. The Walkway begins at the Tower City food court and ends in the Gund Arena lobby, just a short walk from Jacobs Field. The Walkway opens two hours before each game, and remains open for 90 minutes after the game ends.

FARES: Parking is free at RTA rail stations and Park-N-Ride lots. For most passengers, the bus or rail fare is $1.50 each way. With RTA's Family Fare, an adult pays full fare, and then pays an additional $1 for up to three children, age 6-15. Up to three children, age 5 and younger, ride free. Senior citizens, disabled persons and Medicare cardholders can apply for a RTA ID card. After they receive their ID card, all rides are just 50 cents.
