RTA ready for Browns season

RTA will offer extra Waterfront Line service on Saturday, Aug. 7, when the Browns host their annual Family Day at 1 p.m. at Browns Stadium.

The event is free. A family-oriented tailgate party starts at 9 a.m. Gates open at 11 a.m.

Regular Saturday service for the Waterfront Line is a 30-minute frequency, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. During the event, frequency will increase to 15 minutes, and all light-rail trains from the Blue and Green line service will continue to the Waterfront Line.

RTA will offer extra rail service for all 10 Browns home games this year. It’s easy to get to the game.

  • Hop on the HealthLine, ride to Tower City, and transfer to the Waterfront Line.
  • Park for free at many rail stations on the Red, Blue and Green lines.
  • Ride the Red Line to Tower City, and transfer to the Waterfront Line.
  • Ride the Blue and Green lines. All light-rail trains will continue on and serve the Waterfront Line. Take that to the West Third Street Station, directly across the street from a Stadium entrance.

Buy a $5 All-Day Pass, especially if you need to transfer from the Red Line to the Waterfront Line. All-Day Passes offer unlimited ridership until 3 a.m. the next day.
