Cleveland RTA Offering Free Rides on June 22

Cleveland RTA will offer free rides to those using its buses and trains to travel to the Cuyahoga50 event on June 22.

The event marks the 50th anniversary of the last fire on the Cuyahoga River.

Funding for the complimentary public transportation that day is being provided by a $25,000 grant to RTA from Cuyahoga County.

Cuyahoga50 is a five-day event that is part of Sustainable Cleveland 2019, a 10-year effort to promote environmental improvement and sustainability.

More than 100,000 people above the normal Saturday traffic are expected to be in downtown Cleveland on June 22.

That same day the Cleveland Indians will be hosting the Detroit Tigers at Progressive Field.

Other contributors to the RTA free day include the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, which awarded a $75,000 grant.
